    Though their numbers are growing, only 27 percent of all students taking the AP Computer Science exam in the United States are female. The gender gap only grows worse from there: Just 18 percent.   When all science and engineering fields are considered, the percentage of bachelor’s degree recipients who are women has improved to 51 percent in .

      An increasing number of colleges are enrolling more women than men in their medical schools. "Women comprised just over 45 percent of applicants and new students at U.S. medical schools in The proportion of women medical residents increased from 28 percent of all residents in to 38 percent in according to the Association of Author: Susan M. Heathfield.   When Women Stopped Coding: Planet Money For decades, the share of women majoring in computer science was rising. Then, in the s, something changed. Modern computer science is dominated by men.

The conference (and this document) is a beginning, not a culmination, of women`s learning leadership skills. The history of women as designers and builders of machines and structures predates the development of engineering as a trade.

Prior to the creation of the term "engineer" in the 11th century, women had contributed to the technological advancement of societies around the the 19th century, women who participated in engineering work often had academic training in mathematics or science.

The Committee on Women in Science and Engineering (CWSE), a continuing committee established within the National Research Council (NRC) in Januaryhas a four-pronged mandate to: (1) collect and disseminate current data about the participation of women in science and engineering to broad constituencies in academe, government, industry, and professional societies; (2) monitor the progress.

Women have made significant contributions to science from the earliest times. Historians with an interest in gender and science have illuminated the scientific endeavors and accomplishments of women, the barriers they have faced, and the strategies implemented to have their work peer-reviewed and accepted in major scientific journals and other publications.

The Truth About Women in STEM. The National Science Foundation notes that, since the late s, women have earned approximately half of all science and engineering bachelor's degrees and 57 percent of total bachelor's degrees in the country.Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), previously Science, Math, Engineering and Technology (SMET), is a term used to group together these academic disciplines.

This term is typically used when addressing education policy and curriculum choices in schools to improve competitiveness in science and technology development. It has implications for workforce development, national.women were deserving of these awards, and their numbers in science and engineering were increasing steadily, not only because of such incentives but also as a result of the more intensive recruitment activities that began in the s.
