Women In Science: Are Stereotypes Holding Women Back?

There is an obvious and worrying shortage of women in science, particularly in careers collectively known as STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. In a study conducted during 2009, researchers found that only 2.9 million college educated women were employed in STEM jobs compared to 6.7 million men, with women only making up 24% of 24% of all STEM positions.

There are many studies into why this is the case, the most common result being stereotypes. In this infographic from The New Jersey Institute Of Technology, we explore the dangers of stereotyping, when it begins and the impact it has on society.
