The reason women earn more degrees than men is largely due to sex discrimination. I would like to point out this blog

which states there is both economic and financial discrimination against male students in America. It also said 1 federal agency - the National Science Foundation - appears to be violating Title IX because it "has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars over the last few years for college grants with the stipulation the student cannot be a man."

I'd also like to mention a recent TIME article which stated young women earn more than young men largely due to the fact that they have earned more degrees. The articel said this was equality.

Isn't it amazing when women earn more than men its called equality but when men earn more than women its called discrimination.
