Portray Her: Representations of Women STEM Characters in Media
Women constitute half (48%) of the college-educated workforce in the U.S., but hold only a quarter (24%) of jobs in STEM. Women, especially Latinx and Asian-American women, have seen a marked increase in STEM participation starting in the late 1990s, but their numbers remain low. Through this research we better understand why women are persistently underrepresented in STEM and examine how the entertainment media contributes to this under representation.
