      Currently, within STEM, young women gravitate to healthcare, medicine, education, arts, and humanities, while young men gravitate towards engineering, computer science, math and physics. Young women need access to information about all types of STEM possibilities and the women who have succeeded in those careers. A new study explores a strange paradox: In countries that empower women, they are less likely to choose math and science professions. Olga Khazan Febru

    Researchers examined gender stereotypes baked into 25 languages to explore why fewer women enter science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields Despite decades of positive messaging to encourage women and girls to pursue education tracks and careers in STEM, women .   Women, Minorities Vastly Underrepresented in Engineering Profession Numbers of minority engineers are growing but they still make up a small .

      As part of Women's History Month, we put together the 25 Women in Science to Learn More About post to highlight stories of women in science throughout history. There are so many women who could and should be included in lists like this that we separated our list into two parts: scientists and engineers (in which we are including computer science and math). Most STEM (science, technology, engineering, or math) fields are dominated by men. That makes these fields an excellent career choice for women! STEM Careers Just Right for Many Women. Men outnumber women in most STEM careers. For example, just 16 percent of chemical engineers and 33 percent of environmental scientists are women.
