Summary

The paper collects data concerned with the problem of underachievement in gifted girls. The first section looks at how society limits gifted girls in the schools and in the work place. The next section examines how gifted girls limit themselves through internal barriers to achievement, attitudes, and lack of self-esteem. The final section offers suggestions to educators and parents to help gifted girls achieve. Suggestions include early identification of gifted girls; programs which contain enrichment, acceleration, and guidance components; the use of adult role models; use of peer support groups; encouraging the seeking of a female mentor; encouraging the taking of 4 years of mathematics in high school; and avoiding sending conflicting messages concerning the desirability of achievement.
