Inwomen earned 53 percent of the bachelor's degrees conferred in the United States. However, they earned only 39 percent of the bachelor's degrees conferred in science (excluding social sciences and psychology) and only 15 percent of the engineering bachelor's degrees awarded (see Figurepage 68).Within science, the percentage of degrees awarded to women varied by field.

For that audience, Margaret Rossiter's books provide information and analysis that is not /5(4). This book, based on a conference, examines both quantitative and qualitative evidence regarding the low employment of women scientists and engineers in the industrial work force of the United States, as well as corporate responses to this underparticipation.

And particularly an Anglo-cultural one, meaning the United States shares the same problem, too. Sarah Peers of the International Network of Women Engineers & Scientists seems to think so.

According to UIS data, less than 30% of the world’s researchers are women. UIS data also show the extent to which these women work in the public, private or academic sectors, as well as their fields of research.
