examination of the research on a particular issue and the pulling together of results from different studies that we see what the data really show. The single study is too limited and fragile.

In my role as teacher, I have tried to pass on to both my graduate and undergraduate students the skills for doing good research combined with the ability to critically evaluate their own work and that of others, and above all to always keep in view the whole very complicated picture. I have also encouraged my students, and most of them are women, to take more control of their careers than I did. After all, they live in a better world.
