There have been numerous times where I walk into a lecture hall, and I'm the only female and only person under....40 (to be generous). Sometimes I just want a girlfriend to go and hang out with me in a cool, technology lecture....
Where have all the girls gone? Is it the lack of social environment that turns away girls?
I feel, if you created groups to bring girls together, and show them their potential...it would greatly help.
SWE helps me....I get to go to girls, just like me, who are just as smart (if not smarter), just as funny (if not funnier), AND THEY UNDERSTAND MY MATH PROBLEMS!
Are these the problems with STEM? Are there not enough social outlets where the ratio is good enough?
