I wrote We Need More Young Geeky Female Role Models on TV on my pop culture blog, Old Ain’t Dead. I’m calling it to your attention here because I think representation in media is of supreme importance in getting more girls in the STEM career pipeline. I hope you’ll give it a read.
Skye, played by Chloe Bennet, in Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is a good example of the kind of character I’m talking about. This show just began this week. We need more like her everywhere on TV.
Do you have any ideas about how to get more young girls interested in tech careers and about getting more positive geeky girl role models on TV?
