"Like almost everything in the world, intelligence in the population is normally distributed. Women are no less qualified than men: 55 percent of Germany's high school graduates and 51 percent of Germany's university graduates are female. But why are women so grossly underrepresented in MINT occupations? And why don't more women make it into management positions? There are many answers, but one thing underlies everything: Our society thinks too much in stereotypes. Corporates, politics and society all have the power to bring about change and create an environment that enables both women and men equally to develop their talents."
