This discussion addresses equity issues regarding access to technology and to career and educational opportunities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The author reviews germane literature regarding inequities which are tied to gender and provides recommendations for ameliorating those inequities. Primary focus is given to gender inequality. The discussion centers upon defining all key related terms, describing the range of current issues and research about gender and technology, and offering recommendations for promoting gender equity and for conducting related research especially as concerns technology and women’s relative representation in STEM fields.
