We know everyone is busy and there is a ton of information around the web that you may have missed. Luckily for you, we are here to the rescue! Every two weeks, we will be diligently combing through all the noise out there and highlighting stories about women and STEM from the web that we think you should know about.

Being a top scientist is neither a female nor a male job. There is no scientific evidence that states that ones gender is specifically required to obtain a certain profession in science or any other field for that matter. Yet, when you look closely at the data reporting the percentage of female-vs-male full-time STEM professors in the United States and in Europe, only one-fifth are women (1). Interestingly, more women than men earn science degrees (2). A report from the White House Council of Economic Advisers shows that women are 40 % more likely to obtain a graduate school degree (3, 4).
This begs the questions, where do women go and why does it seem to be that they disappear from the fields that they have earned these degrees in?
