The best of minorities in cartoons: Women in STEM

The best of minorities in cartoons: Women in STEM

This week, it’s a round-up post, featuring the minority girls and women I’ve written about so far who’re involved in some way in STEM areas. It’s also a nice way to round out Women’s History Month.

STEM, of course, is short for “Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math,” and there’s been plenty of recent press about the lack of women involved in such fields. Fortunately, there’s a sizable number of women characters in comics and animation whose careers heavily revolve around STEM fields. A number of the entries here are in educational cartoons (appropriately), but some also appear in more conventional entertainment.
