Researchers explain how stereotypes keep girls out of computer science classes
from The Washington Post
Despite valiant efforts to recruit more women, the gender gap in the fields collectively known as STEM — science, technology, engineering and math — is not getting any better. The gaps in computer science and engineering are the largest of any major STEM discipline. Nationally, less than 20 percent of bachelor's degrees in these fields go to women. Women are missing out on great jobs, and society is missing out on the innovations women could be making in new technology. Good work is being done to solve this problem in college and the workplace.
