Anita remembers being good at mathematics (geometry), but contrary to her family’s and companions’ belief in her capacities, chooses not to study mathematics since she feels that ‘science’ is not really suitable for her as a woman. Despite her choice not to engage in what was perceived as natural for her, she recognises the fact that the ‘new’ generation has the potential to reverse such stereotypes if, as she argues, access to both resources and expertise is safeguarded.
