stem represents what is needed to create and maintain a society.....females wont become oil field workers. ...... but will complain that the gas stations are out of gas........ never putting two and two together
I'm glad I'm out, then.
If it was not for Affirmative Action ( Diversity favoritism) policies in the Education System as well as in the Career Job Market .i.e. STEM , Many Women would likely NOT Qualify for those Courses nor those Career Fields as much as they do now. Furthermore, its been shown Interestingly that Women tend to Gravitate more towards Jobs geared to dealing with People rather than Jobs geared to Things or Problem Solving. Thus, without - Diversity Favoritism - I'd naturally expect we would see far more Men in the STEM fields overall as we did in the past before Affirmative Action compared to now. And I would Not be Surprised that many of the Men in the Stem fields are doing more of the work compared to the Women.
I know a guy at GSK, and he reports that yes, there are more women in STEM, particularly in chemistry. He also reported that they're mostly tag-alongs, put in place for diversity hires and who "team" with men on assignments. As you might conclude, the men do the majority of the viable work and the women "contribute just as much and even more, but in a different way" than the men. I also learned that prior to FDA approval, medications have to meet diversity quotas--were there sufficient women and minorities on the R&D teams?--first. While his NDA prevented him from going into details, he did mention that several life-saving and -improving medications and treatments were held up for this reason.
I must admit there are more woman in STEM field nowadays. The media however are bias. They will always highlights the female team member as if she is the main reason for the scientific discovery or breakthrough. Remember, it's a collaborative effort. Every team member is significant regardless the gender.
They're pushing the wOmEn In StEm thing for the same reason they're pushing women into every other high paying field: to get the wages down!
Feminist = Liar.
