Albania with the highest number of women studying science in Europe

 Albania has the highest percentage in Europe of women graduating in Science, Technology and Engineering; or Mathematics. The weight of graduates in these disciplines in 2015 was 53.1%. Specifically, it is the only country in Europe where more women than men are graduated in the exact sciences.

A recent study by two psychologists and researchers from the University of Missouri and Leeds Beckett has concluded that gender equality keeps women away from science. They have called these phenomena "the paradox of gender equality".

They address the phenomenon that the more women have achieved gender equality in a society, the less they choose to study in profiles such as Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics, creating thus a negative link between these two indicators.

From the chart published by IlSole InfoData 24 hours, after Albania, the highest percentage of women graduated in one of the above mentioned disiplines has Macedonia, with 45.1%.

The highest percentage of women graduated in science are mostly Eastern European countries, while the lowest in Western Europe.

Luxembourg has the lowest percentage of women graduated in science by 21.8% and Switzerland by 22.73%, though with respect to the gender equality index, have marked high points.

Albania, although compared to the region, is better positioned in terms of gender equality, has the highest percentage of women scientists.

The countries with the highest equality are the Nordic countries, Finland and Norway. But even though these women have achieved the position they want in the societies of these countries, only 27 and 29 percent these women have chosen to have a career in science.
