Why are girls afraid of mathematics?


At the outset, my apologies for raising such an apparently silly question. However, It bothers (and pains) when I used to hear in friend's gossips that subjects like mathematics and physics are best handled by boys. I also notice many women (including me) who have gone through university levels were actually afraid of mathematics during our student-hood. During those days, the first preference of boys were subjects like maths, physics, economics and girls used to prefer sociology and literature. Does it have something to do with being girls? Any views?

    I think there must be a sense behind the socialisation process of why girls should be having different sets of aspirations than boys. Thanks a lot for answering

    Your answer is interesting. May be you should apply for a patent on it. It will certainly help protect your wisdom on the issue. By the way, what being logical and being serious has to do with being male? kindly enlighten.
