Women and the Future of Physics

The number of women in physics at all levels is increasing but still small. Why? Is this good, bad, or merely inevitable? I will argue
that there is much that the physics community can and must do to increase participation of women. This will require that more physicists (men and women) understand that the dearth of women in physics results from a complicated cocktail of discrimination and societal pressures. But it is also a symptom of a deeper problem that we must solve if physics is to remain a vital flagship science in a changing world.
