    I would like to have seen more women scientists in federal civil service who had degrees in a science. No reason why they couldn’t have gotten the degrees. However, Clinton changed the hiring rules in 1993 and waived qualifications. The typical “scientist” and “engineer” in federal civil service has a high school diploma or a liberal arts degree. For example, the local forest at one point had 7 women “engineers” and not one had a degree in engineering. The same for most science specialties.

    Like the Sanitary Engineer who picks up myntrash every week?

    Hey! That guy’s thinking outside the scientific parameters of STEM-men. Is he an imposter? A liberal arts geek?!

    Yeah, that’s actually not true.

    I went to school for engineering in the 80’s. Easily a third to half the students were women. And most of them very smart. Couldn’t always say that about the guys.

    I just retired from DoD as a program manager. When I was a deputy program director in a highly technical field, my Chief Engineer was a woman. The engineering field has a positive degree requirement, and has since before 1993. I have never seen engineering qualifications “waived”.

    Me too. There were six women in my class of about 100.

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    So which law did Clinton enact to change the rules? Presidents can’t do that arbitrarily. Do you know know that despite everything presidents still are not full on dictators.

    @Nabuquduriuzhur is brilliant at this nonsense information. He is loaded with it. Which explains a few things.

    And those women reportedly said,

    “The odds were good, but the goods were odd!”

    With credit to Jorge Cham, author/cartoonist of the fabulously witty Piled High and Deeper comic strip who, AFAIK, coined that phrased or popularized it!

    I was trained as an engineer in the early 70’s. Roughly 1/2 of people were female. this included petroleum, mining, metallurgical engineering as well as chemical and various space-related tracks. Oh, yes, mustn’t forget the computer engineers. Can’t say how many stayed with it over the years but females were most definitely represented then.
