College Degrees By Gender Remain Remarkably Stable Over Time for Education and Engineering

The chart above is from this new Census report, and shows the percentage of degrees in selected fields earned by females over a 25-year period from 1984-2009.  Women have increased their share of business degrees over time, but for the other three fields: education, natural science and engineering/computers, not much has changed over a quarter century: women still earn a large majority of education degrees, a large minority of engineering degrees, and a slight majority of natural science degrees.

For all of the hand-wringing, social engineering, effort and federal funding that has been directed at trying to get women interested in certain STEM fields like engineering and computer science, it just doesn't really seem to be working.  And if perfect gender parity is the desired goal and outcome, where's the concern for the persistent, significant under-representation of men earning education degrees?

This sentence indicates that there is still an assumption that women in general, and feminists in particular, truly care about equality or even male well-being.

Remove this assumption, since it is not true.

The tired old 'pay gap' lie is still evoked all the time, no matter how often it is disproven. Yet not one feminist cares that 93% of all workplace deaths are of men, and male life expectancy is 7 years shorter than female life expectancy.

Feminist is a hate cult, pure and simple. The problem is that it is perhaps the most successful hate cult of them all (success being measured by the extent to which they can rig laws towards their goals, even bypassing the US Constitution without difficulty).

Prof. Perry,

Once one understands the concept of the 's*** test', then one realizes that when women demand something, they don't actually want that demand to be met, but rather are filtering for which men have the spine to dismiss the demand, vs. which men cave in and grovel (so that women can favor the former and reject the latter).

One should read Heartiste to learn such valuable concepts :
