Male Engineering Student Perfectly Encapsulates Why Female Classmates Aren’t His Equals In His Letter

Male and female engineers aren’t equal after all.

At least that is what Jared Mauldin, a senior in mechanical engineering at Eastern Washington University, seems to think. While I am sure, you are already starting to get angry at what seems like a misogynistic rant.

I assure you that is far from the truth. Mauldin actually wants to shed light on the fact that women have to go through so many hoops to get where guys are in the STEM field. Let him explain it in his own words.

I did not for example grow up in a world that discouraged me from focusing on hard science. I was not bombarded with images and slogans telling me that my true worth was in how I look.

However, the good news is that his letter has been shared more than thousands of times across every social media that you can think of. And many people tend to agree with what he said.

As another person adds:

Girls and women have confronted gender discrimination and prejudice in a multitude of forms throughout history — for stories for children and teens about women’s fight for equality.

A Mighty Girl

While Jared Mauldin is happy that many people are paying attention to this crucial matter, he still has a nagging feeling at the back of his head. As he states that Women have been saying all of this all along yet nobody wants to listen.

Nothing I said was new, it has all been said a thousand times before. The difference is that I am a man. Maybe by standing up and breaking the silence from the male side.

I can help some more men begin to see the issues, and begin to listen to the women who have been speaking about this all along.

-Jared Mauldin
