I have to question the analysis after this:
"These STEM majors, as with economics, begin with few women enrolling and end with even fewer graduating. This “leaky pipeline” has been somewhat puzzling, Arcidiacono said, because women enter college just as prepared as men in math and science. On average, women more eagerly spend time studying than men do, a trait that should theoretically attract women to STEM fields, which generally assign more homework."
More homework? Women should be attracted to STEM fields because they "generally assign more homework"?!
Well... THERE'S YOUR PROBLEM.
F- that... That's not at all why I wanted to go into "STEM" fields. I wanted to build s**t.
