Just a tad problematic for the Day Without Women crowd
As women of privilege abdicate their responsibilities in order to protest President Trump, women hoping to get a leg into the science, technology, engineering and math fields (STEM) have new hope.
A week ago, Trump signed a pair of bills meant to encourage the recruitment of women in male-heavy STEM fields. Only one in four women who hold a STEM degree work in a comparable field. Trump called this “unfair.”
From Fox DC:
President Trump said at an Oval Office ceremony that it’s unfair that only one in four women with a degree in one of these areas works in the field.
One measure authorizes the NASA administrator to encourage young women to study STEM fields and pursue careers that will help advance science and space exploration. It also requires NASA to report to Congress on its plans for achieving the goals spelled out in the legislation.
The second measure authorizes the National Science Foundation to encourage its entrepreneurial programs to recruit and support women to extend their focus beyond the laboratory and into the commercial world.
Trump as the anti-woman president is just another mantra of the ill-informed. He might be uncouth, but so far, nothing about his actions as president indicate sexism.
