There is drastic decrease in the girls graduating from computer sciences field recently. This is happening due to the perception of many girls that it is not their cup of tea.
Girls are equally good at computer sciences as boys; only reason which is holding them back is the misconception they carry about the Computer science.
From child hood many of the boys are interested in technical stuff unlike girls who are interested in various other things due to this the misconception is being rooted in their minds. Most of the boys like technology and are techno freaks but girls like to choose career which is service oriented and which helps people.
Stats of girls graduating in other fields like math’s and science are high but stats of girls graduating from the Computer science majors is less.
This misconception can be changed by showing role models, introducing programming early, providing encouragement etc.
