It's the year 2016, and unfortunately, we still meet big inequalities between women and men, but I would say we're on a good path to “balance“. Of course, there will never be perfect equality, that is just impossible; it's like yin and yang, you need black in white and white in black. But concerning the Stem field, women in STEM need to consider studying, excelling and building up their career. Look at successful STEM companies, many of them are lead by women: Xerox, Google, General Motors, etc. But no one pays attention to that; doesn´t mean it can't be true. This cliché of women, stationed in the kitchen and taking care of children, should be erased from the minds of ladies and gentlemen. I know you might say that this seems natural since this is how was for centuries, and it was, it shouldn't be anymore. The time is different, everything is going forward, everything is changing. Before men were seen as the predator, but now there are many possible leaders. That is what we call evolution.
