In the news - Science careers not 'the preserve of men'

Teenaged girls must not be allowed to feel that maths and science subjects are "the preserve of men", says England's Education Secretary.
Nicky Morgan says only by tackling "tired stereotypes" about science careers will the gender pay gap between men and women be "eliminated".
She highlighted that fewer than one in five girls who get an A* in physics GCSE go on to study it at A-level.
Ms Morgan is backing a campaign to boost the take-up of science A-levels.
