Gender inequality in STEM (Science, Technology, Mathematics and Engineering) is a global occurrence. In APAC, the STEM field is dominated by males (75%) in comparison to females (25%). The situation is largely similar in Malaysia. It is also male-focused, but marginally better with 71% men.
Interestingly, this disparity has not stopped women in Malaysia from pursuing their dreams in STEM. From Professor Emeritus Datuk Dr Mazlan Othman who paved the way for women in STEM, to PhD student Nur Adlyka Ainul Annuar who discovered evidence of a supermassive black hole, Malaysian women have pushed the boundaries of STEM and in doing so, ventured into unchartered territory.
