Scientiae #5 is now up at Clarity. Head over there for some good reading.
Scientiae #6 will be here on May 15. The theme will be "mothers and others, women who have influenced us along the way." Of course, feel free to write about whatever you want. Submission instructions can be found at the Scientiae website.
I also want to point you to a late-breaking post on how girls names may (or may not) influence whether they go into science. I'm inclined to agree with Holly - the effect is undoubtedly small. I've got a pretty femine name and I can't see that it's had any influence on me.
