In modern society, engineering has played a huge part in the way we go about our daily lives. Electricity, phones, computers, running water, the internet; engineers and scientists have all made these conveniences possible and accessible for us. Unfortunately, throughout history, women have faced many barriers in regards to entering the engineering industry, such as a lack of education, gender bias, and financial independence issues. However, over time, these barriers have started to weaken. Although some people will say that not enough has been done to welcome women into the world of engineering, this certainly hasn’t stopped many female engineers pursuing their passion and contributing immensely to the field.
