The longstanding concern about the absence of women in science and engineering in most Western countries has led to much research (see, e.g., Etzkowitz, Kemelgor, & Uzzi, 2000; Zuckerman, Cole, & Bruer, 1991). Today, this is all the more striking since women constitute the majority among students at most Western universities (Quinn, 2003). This article will briefly review research that analyses the lack of women in computer science, with a focus on higher education.
