It's getting close at 57-60%, which is where it's at last time I checked. 66% is what they're predicting by 2020. One analyst quipped that if trends continue the last American male will graduate with a college degree in 2067:

"Tom Mortenson, senior scholar at the Pell Institute for the Study of Opportunity in Higher Education, warned that if statistical trends were to continue at their current rate there would be no men graduating from college after 2067."

There's different types of feminists now. You've got the actual equality feminists like Christina Hoff Sommers, and then you've got the radfem types that phone in bomb threats, pull fire alarms, and so on because they feel feminism is the only lens gender issues can be look at through. Ryerson University's student union actually banned any an all groups from forming unless women's interests are the center of their existence as a way of preventing men's groups from forming on campus. Bigotry much?

Read the book War Against Boys by Christina Hoff Sommers. It's chilling how terrible academia is for boys and men these days. She sounded the alarm 14 years ago and only now are educators starting to wonder why boys are dropping out of the system and falling through the cracks. By the end of the decade colleges will be 2:1 girls to boys. That sounds great on the surface if you're a guy going to school, but the truth is guys are being denigrated, disenfranchised, and more.

This documentary did a great job looking into what drives our choice of careers and found women are just not that interested in STEM jobs, generally speaking.

tl;dw - The more free and open a society becomes, the more likely people are to follow their predispositions. For women that means comfortable jobs with lots of socializing opportunities. For men that was more hands-on type of work relating to personal interests.

What are the advantages over strategically placed cameras? Why not use what's already there, or upgrade them, and feed all of that into a system that does the heuristics they're talking about? Seems like a much more acceptable route, not to mention cheaper, than putting in robots that will need to be maintained, and most likely vandalized on a regular basis.

You are making my point. You're so steeped in the ideology you likely can't see it's faults. Take a break and look at it from the outside, in context to the rest of the world, and you'll see things from a perspective you've probably never seen before. One such example was NOW fighting AGAINST equally shared custody, feminsm's hand in biased family court laws (eg tender years doctrine), unequal and biased domestic violence laws (eg VAWA and predominant aggressor policies), and a whole host of social problems that are the direct result of feminist blinders and baked academic studies.

Yeah, but they're feminists. When are they NOT indignant about something? Here's an article where feminists equivocate the use logic in an argument as a form of domestic violence:

tl;dr - Woman gets drunk, drives, then winds up killing some people. For some reason the state charged the guy who bought her some of the drinks. /facepalm

How about we just stick to holding people accountable for their actions instead of shifting the blame to others, mmmkay?
