The British Council Egypt conducted a study on women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in the country to look at women’s perception of their engagement and representation in STEM in Egypt. Through face to face interviews and focus groups, surveys, phone interviews and data gathered from national and international organisations, our research creates a picture of how the women, surveyed and spoken with, are engaged in and contributing to furthering scientific pursuit; as well as what factors have supported or hindered their overall participation.
