A Complex Formula: Girls and Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in Asia

What factors might be causing the low participation of women Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields? What can be done to attract more girls and women into STEM in Asia and beyond?

The report answers three fundamental questions: Where do we stand? What led us here? Where to from here? It examines a wide range of issues from gender differences in learning achievement in mathematics and science, participation in higher education as well as educational, psychosocial and labour market factors, all of which can influence girls’ and women’s attitudes towards STEM fields as a choice for further study and as a career.
