Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields have been traditionally male-dominated. The position of women in STEM fields is still poor despite advancements and increasing opportunities. Across the world, women are far less likely to pursue an education in a STEM subject and although there are plenty of jobs available in these fields, few of them are being filled by women. As we look towards the future, it is imperative that we empower young women to pursue their dreams and careers in STEM.
This gender gap is alarming because it highlights how women are at risk of being left behind in a digital workforce that is constantly changing. Girls who are not interested in STEM fields are less likely to have access to typically satisfying and well-paying professions. The misconception that STEM is more of a “man’s world” is keeping young women from enrolling in such careers. Women are also discouraged from pursuing professions in STEM sectors due to entrenched gender stereotypes and bias. The purpose of this article is to highlight the advantages of having more women in STEM fields and the significance of empowering them for the future.
