Abstract
  • Industries such as science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), continue to employ fewer women compared to men. These professions that are traditionally considered more masculine sustain gender-imbalanced work forces and are also unattractive to women at an academic level. This thesis explores the hypothesis that performance can be a powerful instrument when used to expose the social issues surrounding women in the STEM industries. The research on this topic confirms the existing gap between genders in this industry and the benefits of closing this gap. A study is performed exploring the possible reasons for the ongoing gap as well as the symptoms of perpetuating gender inequality in STEM. In order to discover possible remedies, an additional analysis on the impact of various forms of media is documented. The results of this research inspired a potential solution in the form of a comedic monologue, in hopes of raising awareness about the current issues experienced by women studying or working in STEM.
