Do you think girls are complicated? How about programming? Some people say, "If girls are complicated and so is programming, then why aren’t more girls in STEM (science,technology,engineering,math)?" Have you ever noticed when you go to the doctor, the receptionist is mostly always a women? Hasn’t that ever bothered you? How about the nurses and doctors? Some still believe that nurses should be women and doctors should be men. C’mon people, we’re not in ancient times, this is the 21st century! Girls can do anything and everything, ESPECIALLY S.T.E.M. Women have endured and sacrificed on this Earth just like men have. In fact, we almost had a woman president this past election year. We believe in GENDER EQUITY - meaning access to higher education and careers in S.T.E.M, regardless of race, creed, color, religion, orientation or GENDER.
