    In , women earned 53 percent of the bachelor's degrees conferred in the United States. However, they earned only 39 percent of the bachelor's degrees conferred in science (excluding social sciences and psychology) and only 15 percent of the engineering bachelor's degrees awarded (see Figure , page 68).Within science, the percentage of degrees awarded to women varied by field.   There’s still a major gender gap in STEM. These women are changing that. For as long as humans have pursued scientific knowledge, the field has been glaringly dominated by men. According to Census data, as recently as , women represented just 7 percent of the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) workforce.
