Özet

A comparison of Turkish and U.S. statistics shows that women in Turkey earn a much larger percentage of physics degrees at all levels than do women in the United States. The Turkish educational system is structured so that female students take the same mathematics and science courses at the same level of skill in high school as do male students. This common background is followed by much greater success for Turkish women university students in all areas of science and engineering.
