Abstract

Is this a man’s world? Surprisingly the 21st century is still struggling with gender discrimination issues in many countries and in many professions. This chapter presents an analysis of the situation facing women professionals working in a developed country, Australia, and in a developing country, Chile, in the engineering/ICT sectors. The approach taken emphasizes the continued existence of inequality in these male-dominated professions based on existing research that shows what continues to be an underrepresentation of women in engineering/ICT. It is expected that the overview of this significant problem of underrepresentation will identify a number of factors at play here and that solutions to the problem will be similar in different countries.
