    I think it has a lot to do with culture.Mechanical and abstract thinking is encouraged in males whereas in females more practical thinking is encouraged. In Western/European culture anyways.....

    Also the fact that women were not encouraged to be educated for so long.

    China and India didn't make the top 5? And the top winners have come from the US and UK?

    I call bullshit.

    Plus its a sausage party.
