Objectives. We focus on variation in gender inequality in physics course-taking, questioning the notion of a ubiquitous male advantage. We consider how inequality in high school physics is related to the context of students' local communities, specifically the representation of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) occupations in the labor force. Methods. This study uses nationally representative data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health and its education component, the Adolescent Health and Academic Achievement Transcript Study. Results. Approximately half of schools are characterized by either gender equality or even a small female advantage in enrollment in this traditionally male subject. Furthermore, variation in the gender gap in physics is related to the percent of women who are employed in STEM occupations within the community.
The article discusses the benefits of the robotic technologies to improve the human healthcare, security and education work. It mentions that assistive robotics technologies provides a good level of autonomy for medically ill, disabled and elderly patients. It notes on the importance of the complement of redistributive approaches and conceptually articulate notion. It also highlights the concept of recognition dealing with specific issues of fair access in technology.
