The talents and knowledge of women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) are critical to maintaining America’s role as a global leader. STEM women are essential for America’s strategy to educate, innovate, and excel. Their expertise makes them invaluable resources on policymaking, from climate change to stem cell research. Their scientific background gives them an analytical approach to problems, a healthy dose of skepticism, a strong grounding in facts, and a wariness of partisan rhetoric. With their commitment to competition, innovation, and discovery, STEM women are closing the gender gap country by excelling in male-dominated fields across the country—the next frontier should be politics.
