A report from the American Association of University Women urges community colleges to give more support to women. The report recommends more campus-based child-care opportunities for student mothers as well as better programs to enable more women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math. "Women are more than half of the 7.3 million community college students. And while we celebrate the accessibility that community colleges provide women we know that access alone is not enough," said AAUW senior researcher Andresse St. Rose, a co-author of the report.
