Engineering student humbly explains why his female classmates aren’t his equal
A recently published letter from a senior in mechanical engineering at Eastern Washington University addressed to “the women in [his] engineering classes” became viral on social networks. Jared Mauldin decided to send a letter to the editor of his school’s student newspaper, The Easterner, explaining why he and the women in his classes are not equal, drawing attention to one of the last barriers for women to break in education: equality of opportunities in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields .

To Mauldin, women have more difficulties not because they are less capable, but because they are less encouraged by society and have fewer opportunities.
