The shift in society’s recent expectations of the culture in the workforce, has allowed women in the STEM fields to be recognized and be a part of. With an increase of women pursuing careers overall, it’s no longer holding them back from entering various STEM fields. This analysis will discuss society’s previous views on women in the STEM fields and the factors that influenced these views. We’ll be focusing on women during the Industrial Revolution, World War I and World War II, Space Exploration of the ’50’s and 60’s, and the medical field during the late 1800’s. The core of our research will be dependent on online scholarly and journalistic articles. By the end of this analysis, there should be an understanding of how women entering the STEM fields has positively impacted previous cultural and gender norms, and recognize that these changes can facilitate future improvements in the STEM fields.
