When Women STEM
STEM is for
Did you know women make up only 28% of the STEM field? Why, you may ask. The lack of women in these fields may be due to the lack of role models, social bias, stereotypes, among other reasons. Stereotype threats, when someone feels they are at risk of conforming to a certain stereotype, can also be detrimental to this gender gap.
What is the Solution?
How do we fix this?
Society instills the message that “STEM is for boys” everywhere- toys, TV shows, etc. Although we cannot combat social bias or stereotypes, if we can introduce a contradicting statement, “STEM is for everyone,” inspire them with role models, and show them how exciting STEM can be, then I believe these girls, all grown-up, will have the support and encouragement to pursue their dreams.
And that’s exactly what I’ve done.
