There’s an enduring stereotype that women tend to be worse than men when it comes to spatial reasoning. Mentally rotating an object, coming up with strategies to maneuver a big piece of furniture through small corridors , giving directions through a city, navigating, even reading a map ― basically anything that requires visualizing and manipulating 3D objects is thought, by some, not to be women’s strong suit. Research stretching back decades supports this view. And since spatial abilities are important in the STEM fields ― that’s science, technology, engineering and math ― this supposed deficiency is sometimes cited as one of the reasons women are underrepresented in those industries

Angela Corey, the Democratic Florida prosecutor who presided over some the Fourth Judicial Circuit Court’s most controversial cases of the past several years, lost her bid for reelection Tuesday night bringing her eight-year tenure to an end.  Melissa Nelson emerged as the Republican primary winner , earning more than 64 percent of the vote compared to Corey’s 26 percent. A third challenger, Wes White, collected less than 10 percent.  Corey’s loss was cheered by defense lawyer and academics, many of whom had criticized her aggressive prosecution, particularly of juveniles.   “Corey’s loss is an encouraging sign that the public will no longer tolerate overzealous and unprincipled criminal prosecutions, including women and children,” Mary Anne Franks, a law professor at the University of Miami, said in a statement Tuesday.  Even musician John Legend, who cofounded the criminal justice reform campaign #FreeAmerica weighed in on the Fourth Judicial Circuit State’s Attorney’s race
