DISCUSSION: Nurs 6512 The Technology Worlds Sexism Needs to End

The topic I chose for my research was on the world of technology and the sexism that is prevalent within it.

For my research, I used the database catalog in the library to find some reliable sources I can use. I found quite a few that interested me by searching with terms such as technology and sexism, using my Boolean search terms. I mostly used ‘and’ so I can relate technology with sexism, discrimination, and similar words. At one point, I filtered my search for peer-reviewed articles but alas, there were very little results in that section on the first database I tried. I then looked on ProQuest, which offered more results fitting what I needed. I selected a few articles from there using both peer-reviewed results and non peer-reviewed results.

Below are the three articles I have chosen.

Institutionalized sexism is rampant in the technological field, with an estimate that if the field were to advance at the current rate it is now, women would not be equal to men until 2075. Everybody must help create an environment in which women can gain the equality that’s been denied them (Evans, 2014).

Women hold less than a quarter of STEM careers compared to men, and it was found to be a problem at academic levels with a lack of interest shown to students in multicultural settings. Engagement factors should be used to lessen the gap between men and women.

Men in the technological world do not understand that the women in the same field should believe in karma to allow them the same pay as their male counterparts. Most people who supported the Microsoft CEO for stating so were in fact men, who seem to believe women should not ask for equal pay but just wait for it. Many later backtracked and said they believe in equal pay and one should ask after criticism. The technology world’s sexism needs to end Discussion

The article I am reviewing is the article from 2017 by Savaria and Monteiro. The information is only a few years old, so it is still relevant but it appears to not be updated since publication. The article’s topic is right up my alley for my research as it is extremely relate-able. I looked at this source fairly early in my search, and it just seemed so perfect. It is at an academic level that is easy to understand and it gets the point across with many resources to back it up. It was published in a journal specifically for the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields.

Savaria is a student majoring in multiple scientific fields and sociological fields as well, with a focus in diversity. Monteiro evaluates preclinical and clinical curriculum of a medical school and handles population health, and is member of the Group on Women in Medicine and Science within the Association for American Medical Colleges, a group focused on advancing the participation and inclusion of women in academic medicine.

The article lists many resources at the end to support their evidence and the article itself has a factual tone. The purpose of the article is to inform and raise awareness for the disparities between men and women in STEM. There does seem to be a small personal bias for diversity as both authors have backgrounds that try to support and include everyone
