Are Women Better PIs?

Last summer, the New York Times ran an article entitled "No Doubts: Women Are
Better Managers," which unleashed a firestorm of comments (over 300), many
of which railed against the inherent sexism of that proposition and others that suggested that women were in fact worse bosses, who were harder on their female subordinates than males.

The following article, posted on the Tomorrows-Professor email list, describes what science says about male and female managers, and some
evidence-based advice for working with men and women in the lab. The article is by Edyta Zielinska and is from The Scientist: Magazine of
the Life Sciences,  Volume 24, Issue 6, Page 71, June 1, 2010.
