Women in Computing
Women should have just as many opportunities as men to study Computer Science and other related fields. Although there are a lot less women who study these kinds of fields, the choice is available to them in our society today. There will always be some professors or counselors who will advise women to not study such fields, which is sad, but those women who have the desire, drive, and determination to succeed in these fields will have success. Nobody really knows why more men study hard sciences than women. There could be various reasons. But as long as there is an equal opportunity for both, we should not worry about why there are fewer women in a given field. The choice to study a particular field should be a personal choice.
