Interesting comments from the past US-presidential family… I will have to find Chelsea’s data. The article gives interesting anecdotes from women who were discouraged in middle school and high school. From the ASEE aggregator:

The Denver Post (6/24, Torres) reports that Chelsea Clinton took part in a panel discussion at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science on Monday, calling for greater efforts to promote gender diversity in the technology industry. The paper quotes Clinton saying, “There are fewer girls who are aspirational in the math and science fields in the United States than there were 20 years ago. We have significantly fewer women graduating with computer science degrees. We have significantly fewer women graduating with mechanical engineering degrees than we did in the mid and late 1980s.”
