Kudos to Jared for his eloquent letter and for raising awareness of these issues in his campus community! Women are dramatically underrepresented in many STEM fields, particularly engineering: in 2012, only 18% of engineering bachelor's degrees in the US were granted to women. It's also common for women who graduate from engineering programs to leave the profession, often because of discrimination and hostile work environments-- something Mauldin also tackles in his letter to the editor published in the current issue of his college newspaper, The Easterner. It is excellent that more men have started recognizing disparate treatment, because it helps to propel us towards a future of equality.
