dc.description.abstractThis study seeks to examine the inequality that exists within physics, a predominately male dominated field. Using data from the American Institute of Physics, in College Park, Maryland, this study examines what men and women do after they complete a bachelor's degree in physics.. Be examining sociological factors, such as socialization and Jean Lipman Blumen's control myths, one is able to see that men and women are found in very distinctive fields that not only accommodate their families, but also greatiy influence their salaries. The examination of other factors such as race, having children, graduating from a private or public institution, and job interruptions are also explored in the pursuit to understand the differences that exists between the men and women within this discipline.
