This graph is really amazing (click on it to get a bigger version). A couple of thoughts.
First, what's wrong with the dudes? Men had 6 million students in 1985, only about 6 mil in 1995, slightly more in '00 and 7 mil in '05. Meanwhile women went from 5 mil in '85 to 10 mil in '05. The chicks added 5 million students, doubling their numbers in 20 years while the guys added 1 mil or 16% increase.
Second, they are predicting that there will be 3 million more female students then men in 2015. Wow!
