Only 12% of engineers in the U.S. are women. Engineering has the lowest female representation of all STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields. Though young women have an interest, they rarely enroll in engineering-related majors due to lack of role models and demoralization from gender stereotypes.
