Why Does Sarah Palin Bring Out The Mean Girls In Us?

Any female who's survived the treacherous battleground of a junior high school slumber party knows that no one can bring a girl down harder and faster than another girl.

Girls Like Math

More and more of us are studying math in college, and not just Stats 101 to fulfill a requirement. According to research released in the journal Science, women earned 48 percent of undergrad degrees in math. Sadly, we still lag behind in physics and engineering.
