American Association of University Women has several presentations with fascinating research. In an era when women are increasingly prominent in medicine, law and business, why are there so few women scientists and engineers?

Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics presents in-depth yet accessible profiles of eight key research findings that point to environmental and social barriers – including stereotypes, gender bias and the climate of science and engineering departments in colleges and universities – that continue to block women’s participation and progress in science, technology, engineering, and math.
