The high technology sector reveals unexpected inequalities. In the management of Apple there are 3 women out of 18, while at Microsoft there are only 17 per cent of women among the engineers and managers. In the IT sector in the US, only 29 per cent are women. But overall, in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics sector (STEM) we find inequalities. In the US, 48 per cent of workers are women, but only 24 per cent of them are STEM workers. Things are better in Europe, where 40 per cent of scientists and engineers are women. Italy has one of the lowest rates among the OECD countries, with 31.7 per cent of women in the sector.
