New research shows that not enough is being done to get girls and women into science and engineering careers with tens of thousands giving up on such careers.
In the last year the number of women going into science, technology, engineering and mathematics, the so-called STEM sector - has fallen.
Now a Yorkshire based organisation which aims to promote science industries for women has gone on the campaign trail and wants change to start right from school age. James Webster reports.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans are the safest and most effective way to identify high risk patients with cardiac chest pain, according to researchers at University of Leeds.
They have carried out a clinical study backed by the British Heart Foundation (BHF).
The study showed that cardiac MRI was better overall at predicting serious events, such as death or heart attack, following chest pain suspected to be angina.
Coronary heart disease (CHD), the world's biggest killer, is responsible for nearly 70,000 deaths in the UK each year, an average of 190 people each day, or one death around every eight minutes.
"The outcomes of this study could lead to changes in clinical guidelines and to the way doctors investigate chest pain due to suspected heart disease." ENDS
"The BHF invested heavily in magnetic resonance scanners for research, including in Leeds, over a decade ago. It is pleasing that this investment of publically donated money is now paving the way for better patient care."
