Created by Madame Premier in honour of International Day of Women and Girl's in Science, the Woman's Place is in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics wide neck sweater is designed to advocate for the increased participation of women in these fields and support the women already working in these areas.
With women holding only 15% of full professorships in science overall in Canada and 8% of full professorships in engineering compared to 31% in humanities, there is still very a long way to go in seeing more women in these fields. In the US, the Department of Commerce in 2017 reported that American women constitute slightly more than half of college-educated workers but makeup only 25 percent of college-educated STEM workers.
Madame Premier is advocating for all systemic barriers to STEAM for women be addressed and dismantled, that STEAM infrastructure be created for and by women to encourage their participation, that organizational structures and workplace cultures address issues related to women in workplaces and classrooms. Some are related to organizational or workplace culture and that organisations that advocate for the participation of girls and women in STEAM are recognised and adequately funded.
