Too few women in Maths/Engineering is "broken." Too few men in Social Science/Child Care/Psychology is "fine."
That's not true. Specifically, I know that there has been a big push to get more men involved in education. The motivation for this is that young boys (and even teenage boys) who are behaviorally disruptive in class respond very well to a male teacher. And that's a win for everyone. Unfortunately, teachers are not well-payed, so it's hard to get people into the field, period, let alone men.
If you look at a Psychology, Social Science, or English they have an extremely disproportional amount of women in them.
Try taking a look at MA/MS/PhD enrollment in those fields. Much closer to 50/50. No one really cares about undergraduate degrees.
