TO THE CONTRARY

TTC Extra: Do Girls Think They're Brilliant?

  • Aired: 01/30/2017
  • Rating: NR
According to a study published in the Science Journal, research found that young girls are less likely to consider themselves "really smart" in comparison to young boys. Previous findings suggest that girls shy away from STEM related jobs due to the assumption that they lack the "innate talent" to be successful in it. Panel: Ann Stone, Jennifer Higgins, Anushay Hossain, Debra Carnahan
