The buzz: Numbers game. Girls in the US are more likely than boys to study algebra and pre-calculus, yet college women earn only 18% of undergraduate degrees and less than 4% of doctorates in computer science and engineering.

Rathna Kedilaya, TCS: “You must do the thing you think you cannot do” (Eleanor Roosevelt). Kinsey Ann Durham, GoSpotCheck: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.
