I came along this question on Quora, that hot 100+ answers, both from male and female engineers and researchers, most of them asking the person not to be discouraged!
- Please don’t quit. Please don’t quit. Please don’t quit.
- Short answer: no way!
- No, don’t switch!! At least not for that alleged reason.
Do not switch.
No, you should not. At least not due to the reason stated : your gender.
- No, don’t switch if you really like to do that. Seriously.
FUCK NO, DON’T CHANGE!
- No, no, NO!
They all mention great women engineers and also talk about the difficulties and challenges of being a women in a man-dominated world. I hope this reflect the many people who are supportive for women in engineering environment!
It is a great link if you want to advise any girl to follow an engineering degree.
Thanks to Francisco Alberto Rodríguez Mayol for the link!
