Computer science now the top major for women at Stanford
from LA Observed
This is a milestone for Silicon Valley and for higher education in America, precisely because it has apparently never been true before. The most popular major for female students at Stanford University to declare this academic year is computer science. It's Stanford's most popular major overall, but that hasn't been true for women there or possibly any place else. The reticence of women to study computer science and the STEM sciences in general at top universities has long been known; the previous number one major for women at Stanford had been human biology.
