Why is there such a lack of female representation across the STEM fields?

In a society that is renowned for pushing boys into certain interest and activities that require more “Brilliance” and mainstream media constantly stereotyping men to be brilliant and females to be the lesser gender, are we really questioning why girls at the age of 6 lack confidence in abilities and skills of their own gender?
