A recent study published in the journal, Child Development, found that children are drawing more female scientists than ever before, with girls more likely to draw female scientists than boys. The study found that children as young as six years old showed more gender diversity in their drawings of scientists than in previous years. Specifically, the study found that 28 per cent of the children drew female scientists, compared to 0.6 per cent in a similar study conducted in the 1960s.
