Explore Resources for Women Undergrads in Science, Engineering
The lack of women in science and engineering has long been a sore spot within the U.S. education system, and it's not getting any better. From 2004 to 2014, the share of bachelor's degrees earned by women decreased in engineering; computer sciences; Earth, atmospheric and ocean sciences; physical sciences, mathematics, biological and agricultural sciences; and social sciences and psychology, according to a recent report from the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center. Stereotypes about who is best suited to go into engineering can block girls from following certain academic paths, says Jenna Carpenter, president of the Women in Engineering ProActive Network, which works with a number of school administrators and corporations to help women thrive in engineering.

Study: Women Aren't Discriminated Against In Science Or Math, It's Actually The Opposite
A new study by two Cornell professors suggests faculty in several different STEM fields actually favor women by a more than 2-to-1 margin over identically-qualified men. The belief that women face substantial discrimination when trying to enter scientific fields is an article of faith for the American left. Professors Wendy Williams and Stephen Cici published their study on Monday as part of their work for the Cornell Institute for Women in Science. The pair created a lengthy set of fictional job-seekers in four fields: Biology, economics, psychology and engineering. Many of the fictional profiles were pairs, with identical resumes differing only in being either male or female. They sent slates of job candidates to more than 800 faculty members at 371 colleges in all 50 states, asking them to rank them in order of hiring preference.
