In Jordan, the overrepresentation of women in overall tertiary enrollment is a relatively recent phenomenon (43%/37% female/male enrollment; UNESCO Institute for Statistics [UIS], 2015), and it has raised the question of a possible change in the perception of young women’s roles in society (Adely, 2004). Still, less than a quarter of Jordanian STEM researchers are women (UIS, 2015). Although the percentage of female students in specific disciplines such as computer science is lower, it is rising (about 25% in 2009 and 49% in 2011) (Khreisat, 2009). Further, the proportion of women in other STEM disciplines (e.g., chemistry, biology, physics, and math) is as high as 75% (UIS, 2015).
