The jobs in computing field have been a ray of light in a gloomy economy. Through statistical analysis, women earned only 18% of computer science degrees in 2012 cutting down from 27% in 2001. Unemployment in this field stands at only 3.5% and the number of computing jobs is expected to grow more than 20% by 2020.
The field of computer science and information technology are among the nation`s rapidly enhancing occupations and the employees are facing a tough time to fill open jobs. It is an uphill task for the men to fulfill the demand on their own. The research studies have shown that the declination of the women in computing field is associated with the social influences.
A report published last week to coincide with Computer Science Education Week, exposes the way in which the gender divide in computer science is becoming more extreme. With the title Half Empty the report points out:
“Men have surged back into computing in the past five years, but women have not recovered from last decade’s slump.”  (
The most common perception of computer science as a solitary profession can isolate girls as well as women. This insight is nurtured by popular society which portrays women in computing as eccentric and odd figures.
Bentham Science Journal “Recent Patents on Computer Science” publishes review and research articles, and guest edited thematic issues on recent patents in all areas of computer science. The journal is essential reading for all researchers involved in computer science. This journal is indexed in Compendex, Scopus and Pubs Hub.
