Submission + - SPAM: Russia is better at encouraging women into tech?

randomErr writes: A new study from Microsoft based on interviews with 11,500 girls and young women across Europe finds their interest in engineering or technology subjects drops dramatically at age 15. The reason found are that girls follow gender stereotypes, have few female role models, peer pressure and a lack of encouragement from parents and teachers. Russia is different. According to Unesco, 29% of women worldwide are in science research, compared with 41% in Russia. In the UK, about 4% of inventors are women, whereas the figure is 15% in Russia. Russian girls view Stem far more positively, with their interest starting earlier and lasting longer, says Julian Lambertin, managing director at KRC Research, the firm that oversaw the Microsoft interviews.
