Or does it!
WATCH THIS VID!
I wanted to share this because quite frankly, it's brilliant.
A double-bluff of sorts, this short, powerful, pertinent clip, illustrates how amusing it is to think that there are still pockets of society who believe us girls can't code.
Granted, this is taking things to the nth degree but sometimes, you've just got to laugh!
The part that I find the most interesting though, is the statement at the very end. It suggests that there is a notion that girls can't take a joke. For heavens sake! We can't look good and be smart. We can't be mothers that work effectively. We can't succeed in tech. We can't make the first move on a date. Can't drink beer. And throughout all of this, we now can't even break a smile.
“There are already a ton of inspirational videos about why girls should code. We wanted to try something different and use humour and satire to question the stereotypes that tell our girls that coding is not for them,” Girls Who Code founder and CEO Reshma Saujaniexplained explained to LBB. “When the girls themselves verbalise the biases it becomes abundantly clear just how ridiculous it is, said “McCann New York executive creative director Priti Kapur. “The notion that being a woman is somehow a disadvantage for coding is so deeply ingrained in society that you almost need to hear it out loud to realise how crazy it is.”
