Let me switch gears here for a second and talk about women in STEM. They need to love atoms and quantum entanglement and bridges and nuclear reactors!Despite throwing every incentive their way, the percentage of women in STEM fields hasn’t budged that much over 20 years, with one big exception: medicine, both veterinary and human.
