We are raising $200,000 to continue to fund the newly established "Women in STEM, Medicine, and Law Scholarship" at Boise State University. This scholarship was created on 12/2 after a Boise State professor made statements discouraging women to pursue engineering, law, and medicine studies.
At the National Conservatism conference in Orlando, Florida, held from Oct. 31 – Nov. 2, a Boise State professor in the political department, Scott Yenor, stated that independent women are “medicated, meddlesome and quarrelsome.” He also stated, “Our culture is steeped with feminism; it teaches young boys and girls that they are motivated by much the same things and want much the same things.” Most disturbingly he states “Every effort must be made not to recruit women into engineering, but rather to recruit and demand more of men who become engineers. Ditto for med school, and the law, and every trade.”
We want all Boise State female students to feel safe and supported pursuing any degree they choose. All students should be able to be supported in whatever path they choose.
Please donate to this fund to support the female students at Boise State University who are pursuing studies in STEM, medicine, and law.
