This book analyzes why there are so few women who study and work in STEM fields. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The report is made up of three studies which are based on interviews to young people who study or work in STEM fields, aiming to discover key questions to understand gender divide. Topics such as young people´s perception about STEM works and workers, the importance of individual goals versus common goals, the reasons why they decided to choose STEM professions or the barriers they perceive women find to access these kind of fields.
