An interesting article indeed, and I am surprised that African-American women were less likely to associate STEM professionals with men, and that African-American men were less likely to assume that STEM fields were more masculine (especially in light of the fact that, at least according to the surveys of college/university students that I'm familiar with, African-Americans are underrepresented in STEM studies).
