It’s Not About Gender-Gaps. (Unless,…).

But it could be if you want it to be.

I personally feel the whole US STEM gender-gap thing overstates the case. I want to talk about boys AND girls being denied education, rights, full nutrition, dignity, limbs, and even life in places like Nigeria, Guatemala, Sudan. These are complex topics.

Yet that’s the beauty. If you want to focus on girls in tech, this is a way to do it. I love RailsGirls and GirlsWhoCode and GirlDevelopIt. Now, take it to the next level.

Beyond evenings or the odd weekend. Make it part of the regular academic school-day. For as many girls as you possibly can.
