500px Prime‘s partnership with for-women-by-women stock photography pioneers SheStock is barreling along at full-steam. We’re so excited to be part of shattering the damaging and false stereotypes often imposed on women by standard stock photography libraries, and one of the main areas where this is the case is women in STEM — science, technology, engineering, and math.

According to the National Girls Collaborative Project, gender disparities begin to appear in STEM education at the undergraduate level in the US. By the time women reach the STEM workforce, they make up only 13% of the engineering and 25% of the mathematical sciences workforce. By comparison, women make up 47% of the total U.S. workforce.

The reasons behind these disparities are, of course, varied and complex, but SheStock is doing their part to fight the stereotypes that might be discouraging young women from pursuing their passion for STEM.

Just added to their 500px Prime store today, here are 21 inspirational stock photos of women in STEM, captured by SheStock’s team of female photographers:
