This is a study to show the participation of female students in subjects related to science in the recent days compared to the previous days. To conduct the study, I have designed the study by showing the cultural barrier of the participation of women in education and how this is changing in time and how they are participating in the various science related fields in the current days by overcoming their cultural and social barriers. I have shown the Statistics of all education boards of Bangladesh in the two major Programs, S.S.C. and H.S.C. examinations of the years 2012 to 2017. For further study, I have shown a short overview of University of Dhaka which is one of the leading universities of Bangladesh. Afterwards, the study was followed by showing the participation of the Women in the different professions in the Women Association of Engineering, Planner and Architect (WAEPA) which was updated in the year 2015. To make the study stronger, I have shown the comparative study of the graduates of BRAC University which is in the top ranked among all private universities in Bangladesh. I have used the tables, bar and pie charts to show the comparisons between different years and male and female participants in different science related sectors.
