Women’s Perseverance in STEM: Past and Present. 

The world is going through rapid changes so much; so that it can be hard to recognize that this is 

the same place we grew up in. But despite all of these rapidly changing trends and behaviors we 

see, many aren’t so new. In the past men and women have competed to curry the favor of the 

opposite sex. Men and women today, just like it has been for centuries, work hard to provide for 

their families and deal with the troubles that people of the world are yet to find are caused by 

some of their own behaviors. So, you may can use this to compare how much has changed and how 

most of it at its core has stayed the very same — the pursuit of happiness for a better life.
