We go back to the very beginning. We buy little girls nice dresses and dolls and barbies and cleaning sets and small houses; while we give little boys cars and LEGOs and tranformers. And again I ask, why do we do that?
But then we go older. We discover Tv. We see beautiful tall models, superstar singers and fashion icons. As well as we see many famous stupid boys, we also can see brilliant researchers creating the latest technology and leading the world (mostly from Silicon Valley, yep). How many of these among the ladies can you name?
Finally there comes the day where we have to decide our future. Do we want to become a lawyer? A teacher? A cook? But not many girls are encouraged to take an engineer career or motivated to be the next Bill Gates, or Mark Zuckerberg or Steve Jobs. We are not.
Then we will grow up and settle down. And marry and have children (or maybe not, whatever your decision is). We will buy dolls to our daughters and cars to our sons.
Again. But there is something really wrong in this whole process.
I was just thinking... where is our society making a mistake? We'll have to change our point of view, our decisions and break the stereotypes. Yes, you can be a nice smart beautiful tech women and not be a nerd or strange or annoying. Even more, you should be proud. Not ashamed.
Point is, come on girls! It's 21st Century, and we still have one missing thing to take over: technology.
