Here is yet another article on how womens confidence in their own math-abilities is affected by unconscious assumptions about whether one belongs in STEM or not. And that this can depend on whether the teacher is male or female. (And the article also allows a glimpse on the current discussion about the women's issue in the states...)

Have a sunny evening!
