First of all, I'd like to clarify my title by pointing out it is NOT a dodgy pick-up line. I am a female myself and have noticed that pretty much every woman who enrolled at my university in physics is going on, or plans to go into the field of astrophysics, myself included. I am wondering if this is a freak trend at my university (possibly due to the eventual SKA being partially built in my country and state), or if this is common? Are there more women in astrophysics than nuclear physics, for example? Physics is still a male-dominated field, and I realise how wonderfully hard my department has worked to get an above-average percentage of women into it, but is it easier for us to attract the ladies than other physics fields? Why did I choose astro over other areas? Do we accept when our girls say "astronomy" because it's easy to romanticise, or we think they said "astrology"? Did my fellow students and I watch too much "Stargate SG1" and "Contact" growing up, with lead female astronomers? Are there even any movies/tv shows with lead females in another field of physics? I'd like to know your thoughts on this, and any trends you have noticed.
