Dr. Schiebinger, a historian, makes another case for working to include women in STEM: women's lives are at risk if no women are included in STEM initiatives. She is collecting case studies, examples in the article below. One that is not mentioned is how airbags initially killed women and children, because the standard body type considered in the design was that of a male.
