This paper examines how gender inequality serves as a critical barrier that prevents women and girls from entering the STEM fields. The paper focuses explicitly on this issue within Lebanese universities. Toward that end, this paper presents the findings of a survey distributed to universities across Lebanon. The aim of the survey was to measure the attitudes of Lebanese students concerning women and girls in the STEM fields. This analysis is followed by a set of recommendations to promote women and girls in STEM and offers some suggestions for future research on the subject.
