Abstract

Abstract: The presence of women in most technology and some science fields has waned in the past 30 years. Past research has indicated society contributes to women seeking careers in traditionally male-dominated fields. Understanding sociocultural influences, such as the media and the perceptions of how these representations contribute to the inequity of women to men in STEM and specifically technology fields has implications for pre-service education. The intention of this study is to review and analyze the media and their representation of women and girls in STEM. The results of the study will provide key findings regarding stereotypical representations, under representation, and minimization of women's roles in STEM fields. From these findings, educators can design instruction and activities to help educate pre-service and in-service teachers on sociocultural influences.
