Not so stupid.A. Nerd Girls is a growing movement by young women in the sci-tech fields to create a worldwide network and to offer support and encouragement so that more girls will study these subjects in school and enter into what have historically been male-dominated professions. An equally important part of the Nerd Girl mission is to dispel the myths and stereotypes about these fields and the women who choose to enter them.
Nerd Girls was founded in 2000 by Dr. Karen Panetta, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at Tufts University. Dr. Panetta wanted to empower the young women in her classes by making them part of an all-female team and building their confidence with hands on engineering challenges. Dr. Panetta partnered with documentary filmmakers Paola di Florio and Karen Johnson to expand the Nerd Girls’ media presence and spread the mission globally.
I can’t wait till the day that my career allows me to buy my first pair of Jimmy Choos or Manolo Blahniks!
:yuck:For weekends and parties, I love to rock a mini dress and very high heels,
I wouldn't mindWhy do they all look slutty? How about smart girls that don't look like a tramp? If I was that age, I would NOT want to be associated with that type of image, partying, vacuous fashion trends?
The supposed goal of the show is to encourage girls to go into "nerdy" studies. :uhh:There are too many different kind of people but more important question is if those girls need external motivation, and there is no show that can target everyone. One thing I did not understand why a smart girl would get intimidated from a stupid show.
