    Gender and Technology brings together leading historians of technology to explore this entwined and reciprocal relationship, focusing on the tools (cars, typewriters, computers, vibrators), industries (dressmaking, steam laundering, cigar making, meat packing) and places (factories, offices, homes) of North America between and Book Description. The question of gender in science and technology is pursued by scholars from different disciplines and perspectives: historians study the lives of women scientists within the context of institutions that for centuries held women at arm’s length; sociologists uncover women’s access to the means of scientific production; biologists scrutinize how science has studied female.

There are even larger gender differences in the fields of study chosen in higher education: in OECD countries, fewer than 1 in 3 engineering graduates and fewer than 1 in 5 computer science graduates are girls. This is likely because of stereotypes and expectations, rather than performance differences in math and science.

Women make up only 28% of the workforce in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), and men vastly outnumber women majoring in most STEM fields in college. The gender gaps are particularly high in some of the fastest-growing and highest-paid jobs of the future, like computer science and engineering.

She Figures — Gender in Research and Innovation 5 Executive summary She Figures is the fourth publication of a key set of indicators that are essential to understand the situation of women in science and research.

The She Figures data collection is undertaken everyFile Size: 4MB. The question of gender in science and technology is pursued by scholars from different disciplines and perspectives: historians study the lives of women scientists within the context of institutions that for centuries held women at arm’s length; sociologists uncover women’s access to the means of scientific production; biologists scrutinize how science has studied female and male bodies; cultural critics.

Too many girls and women are held back by biases, social norms and expectations influencing the quality of the education they receive and the subjects they study.

They are particularly under-represented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, and consequently in .indicators.

In the case of science and gender indicators it is necessary to determine whether the aim of the indicator is to identify a social problem, a matter of justice, or a human capital problem in an attempt to avoid wasting resources.

While recognising that all three of these are legitimate concerns, the ETAN report gives.Main Science and Technology Indicators, Volume Issue 2 This biannual publication provides a set of indicators that reflect the level and structure of the efforts undertaken by OECD member countries and seven non-member economies (Argentina, China.
