Special Focus: Fostering girls' interest in STEM

In the technical museum.jpg
As we continue to celebrate the achievements of women and girls throughout March, we would like to dedicate this Special Focus to an area where girls are under-represented and should be given more visibility: STEM education (which stands for teaching and learning in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). Women are strongly disadvantaged as compared to men in the fields of engineering, science and technology - when it comes to their salary, training or promotion opportunities. However, there are strong role models of women who lead in this area, and more should be done to break down the stereotypes and provide the right incentives and training to all girls who would like to pursue a career in those male-dominated fields. This is why fostering girls' interest in STEM is so important. In this context, Wikigender has prepared a selection of blogs and media articles. Find out more!
