We already know the facts: Women are vastly underrepresented in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) undergrad programs and jobs.
In fact, according to the Economics & Statistics Administration, women hold less than 25 percent of STEM jobs and a disproportionately low share of science-related undergraduate degrees.

Women may make up the majority of online users, trendsetters, and consumers, but we have a long way to go to reach proportionate amounts in the field of technology. Women account for only 5% of tech engineers and startup founders and represent 12% of all computer science graduates. Latinas are even less represented with only .03% of Latina freshmen majoring in computer science in 2006. Despite the low numbers, we tracked down 25 Latinas changing the face of technology and inspiring others to do the same.
