Motivation

Though boys continue to outnumber girls when it comes to participation in high school sports, they are greatly outnumbered in every other extracurricular activity, from student government to student newspapers and academic clubs, suggesting that boys are not as fully engaged in their high school experience.
  • The number of high school females taking Advanced Placement (AP) exams outstripped the number of males in 1987-women now account for more than 54% of those taking the AP exam, and the gap continues to grow.
  • By the end of the sophomore year of college, women are more likely than men to have a GPA greater than 3.00 or higher, while men are more likely to have a GPA of less than 2.50.
