Why do women avoid Science and Engineering fields?

My comment:
Please don't assume that the Science and Engineering fields are perfect as they currently are. The fields need to get a lot more human, a lot more integrated than the present hyper-divided, hyper-fragmented and hyper-hierarchical state. There is a serious issue of arrogance and "I know everything" in these fields; which also leads to prevention of real innovation, callous attitude towards serious human and environmental risks of under-researched "solutions" that end up creating more problems. A systemic correction is way overdue. One factor in women staying away might very well be that they are better at avoiding becoming inhuman technocrats than the men.
