Women and minorities against the "norm"

I do not know much about engineering and its statistics, so I did a quick google search on it and find that the answer to the first question is yes. Today engineering is dominated by white, according to the source it states 73%. Even around campus today, I hear people unfortunately mock females being in math and engineering majors/obtaining degrees. I honestly cannot understand why engineering and math are seen as being purely meant for white males. I think time will change all that though, as this article is a prime example. Women will pursue what they are passionate about regardless of the statistics that are shown. I believe that last time I checked, a woman makes .76 of every dollar a man makes. I do not think they receive the same respect, as I stated previously the engineering field is not seen for women. Women and minorities are still discriminated today among various things other than what they majored in. It is a controversial issue that seems to not get much attention, nor has various solutions. I hope that one day that comes to an end. There is definitely progress, but there is room for much more. Here is a link of where I got my stats information from: http://www.onlineuniversities.com/blog/2012/06/10-startling-stats-about-minorities-stem/
