Although women fill close to half of all jobs in the U.S. economy, they hold less than 25 percent of STEM jobs. This has been the case throughout the past decade, even as college educated women have increased their share of the overall workforce.
Women with STEM jobs earned 33 percent more than comparable women in non-STEM jobs –
considerably higher than the STEM premium for men. As a result, the gender wage gap is
smaller in STEM jobs than in non-STEM jobs.

In fact, women lost ground in all seven bachelor’s field categories tracked by the Clearinghouse.
