Women In STEM Jobs: The Reality And Struggle Of Women
Women have been underrepresented in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) field in the past decades. There is no clear reason why there is a huge gap between both genders in this field. But the struggle does not only include white women; colored women also struggle to take part of this area. As a (woman) biomedical engineering student, I decided to look deeper at why this gap has created a male-dominated field and how it affects gender and racial minorities.
