Why women are poor at sci­ence, by Har­vard pres­i­dent

The pres­i­dent of Har­vard Uni­ver­si­ty has pro­voked a furore by argu­ing that men out­per­form women in maths and sci­ences because of bio­log­i­cal dif­fer­ence, and dis­crim­i­na­tion is no longer a career bar­ri­er for female academics.

Lawrence Sum­mers, a career econ­o­mist who served as trea­sury sec­re­tary under Pres­i­dent Clin­ton, has a rep­u­ta­tion for out­spo­ken­ness. His tenure at Har­vard has been marked by clash­es with African-Amer­i­can staff and left­wing intel­lec­tu­als, and com­plaints about a fall in the hir­ing of women.
