In the world of the most highly trained professionals—doctoral Scientists and engineers—women have indeed advanced a long way in the past 25 years. Where women were only 13% of new science and engineering Ph.D.s in 1973, they were 33% in 1996. Even in engineering, the broad field that has the lowest representation of women, they had grown from less than 1% to over 12% of new doctorates. This growth in both share and numbers has increased the representation of women throughout the fields of science and engineering.
