Electroweak data from the high energy electron-positron and proton-antiproton colliders are reviewed. On the whole the data is consistent with and supports the predictions of the electroweak theory. However, a crucial prediction of the theory remains to be verified: the existence of the Higgs boson and its light mass, less than 193 GeV, obtained from a fit to all the data within the electroweak framework. The lower limit on its mass from direct searches being 114 GeV, the mass of the Higgs is fixed within a narrow range which is expected to be explored at the Fermilab Tevatron experiments or later at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
