I'm conflicted about this bill, as a female biology PhD who is deeply worried about my career futures in the USA. I come down on supporting it, but ONLY if it comes with money added to the NSF's shrunken budget. As it is, science funding in the US is stagnant and actively under attack from Congress. I would rather see the NSF continue to fund science from its scarce budget than see its money go to fund women in private STEM entrepreneurial funds, because most women in science are trained in the same pipelines we are cutting now. And I must say, I am sick and tired of initiatives trained to lure women into fields that we the people are not willing to actually fund, so that women can piss away their love and energy without being compensated with pay or jobs. The funding rate in my field for grants from the NSF is 6%--a whopping 94% of all grant applications are not funded, and those grants are supposed to pay for 1-3 years' research for your employees and all the reagents you need. We're starving, and we're starving as American scientists because the NSF is starving.
