      Yes, there's a major gender gap. However, in science and engineering (and math and so forth) fields, the numbers are still ridiculously tilted towards men. In fact, in computer science and related fields, after gender imbalances started to narrow in the early 2000s, they have started to widen again.

      Women are still being discouraged heavily from competing in the sciences, starting at an extremely young age.
