An infographic from the National Center for Women & Information Technology that provides statistics on how women/girls are represented in information technology.
Some of the numbers:
*Girls comprise 56% of all Advanced Placement (AP) test-takers, 46% of all AP calculus test-takers, but only 19% of all AP Compuer Science test-takers.
* The US Department of Labor estimates that by 2020 there will be more than 1.4 million computing-related job openings. At current rates, however, we can only fill about 30% of those jobs with U.S. computing bachelor's grads. Girls represent a valuable, mostly untapped talent pool.
