Title

Number of Women Winning Degrees Has Greatly Increased, Studies Show

Description

This reports on how more women are choosing to pursue degrees, as well as master's degrees, saying that the number has "tremendously increased in recent years". According to the article, there is still a need for more women with advanced training, as well as "easing the shortages in many fields," and then explains an increasing need for engineers, scientists, but also linguists, anthropologists, economists, and statisticians. The worry of a women being rejected from a job are decreasing, and the article plainly states that "from all accounts, the women do just as good a teaching job as men."
