A lot of emphasis has been placed on attracting young girls to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) to boost university enrollments with women. It seems "they" want women in STEM, whoever "they" are. I suppose that effort has its place and will succeed to some degree.
I don't think it will be a problem to attract young women to STEM. The careers are interesting and can be made to sound so exciting the possibilities will be irresistible.
I do think it will be a problem to retain women in engineering. It seems women leave E more than STM.
Some women will say it's because the men are jerks. While men can be jerks, I think the problem is rooted in something much deeper and more disturbing to men than just being a jerk.
The slang meaning of jerk applied to humanity is: ignorant, stupid, and worthless. I believe those are mutually exclusive to anyone holding an engineering degree.
No, I think the problem is rooted in something much more disturbing and difficult to change than being a jerk.
You'll have to decide for yourself.
