”CriticalJune 13, 2016, Hershey, PA – IGI Global, an international publisher of progressive information science and technology research, is pleased to announce the release of Critical Research on Sexism and Racism in STEM Fields.

Despite a higher percentage of women entering various STEM fields, issues of discrimination and stereotyping continue to exist. These difficulties create a potential hostile environment and a noticeable gap in opportunities, advancements, and compensation increases in comparison to their male counterparts. Critical Research on Sexism and Racism in STEM Fields investigates the bias, stereotyping, and repression experienced by women within STEM-based career fields. Emphasizing the struggle felt by women within politics, education systems, business environments, STEM careers, as well as issues with advocacy and leadership, this publication benefits professionals, social activists, researchers, academics, managers, and practitioners interested in the institutionalized discrimination and prejudice women encounter in various fields.

Edited by Ursula Thomas (Georgia Perimeter College, USA), and Jill Drake (University of West Georgia, USA), this resource is part of the Advances in Religious and Cultural Studies book series.
