Good news: almost 60 percent of all biology degrees (bachelor's, master's, and doctorates) are earned by women. But there's a downside to this incredible statistic: work-life imbalance, a lack of female role models and mentors, and a scarcity of tenure-track positions in the sciences are causing these educated women to consider other possibilities. Fortunately, two Scripps College alumnae are working to curb this trend.
