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?

I’ve read! interesting)) but girls can work much better in other spheres, so let boys be programmers))
I also see no need in increasing tech popularuty among girls..) majority of them would be less competitive in this sphere in comparison with men..
Normally, I would delete these two comments as link bait, which they are, but I think they are proof of my point, so I’m leaving them here. Enjoy.
