Nice graph showing college degrees granted by gender. You are (and earn) what you study.

Degrees by gender.  Note the 50/50 line ("Social Studies and History" is as close to a 50/50 split as can be) .  This means any bar that extends to the right of the split women earn a perponderance of the degrees in that dicsipline, for example women earn 87.7% of the degrees in "Family and Consumer Sciences".  On the other extreme, women earn only 17.2% of the degrees in Engineering.

Lots of economic, social and political implications here. Discuss.
