“These women all want the STEM Princess movement out into the wider world in different, meaningful ways to in turn spark a new generation of women in STEM.  We know from the research that women in STEM are paid closer to parity with men, and have higher wage earnings.

Happy International Day of the Girl

Friday, October 11th, 2013

I had no idea, until a friend of mine, sent me the link last night to Day of the Girl, which just happens to be October 11th every year, which, if you’ve got a calendar handy, you know is today.  Of course, I had to check out the site.  They even have an actions toolkit for today, and included in this kit is to make some noise on social media.  The hashtag is #EveryGirlCounts.

After recently seeing the documentary film, It’s a Girl, I realize that while girls in America and girls in Indiana in particular are still far behind, we are light years ahead on equality than countries like China and India, where girls are still aborted, murdered and neglected from birth and beyond.  On top the horrible gendercide happening, the creation of an overpopulation of males without potential women partners has created yet another problem–where girls are being stolen and kidnapped to become future brides.

This. Must. Stop. Until we start embracing, accepting and treating both genders equally, our world will remain a mess.  Let’s face it, our world would be a much better place if we had more women in leadership roles.  That’s why I will continue the crusade of crazy to get the children’s book done to inspire girls to be anything they want to be in STEM.  STEM is one area where there is less pay gap between genders, and STEM careers give women the opportunity to be financially independent.

Two things I’ll leave you with on this Friday:

1. We are at 44% to goal with the children’s book, and today, my update is another episode of – Did the STEM Princess Live Happily Ever After? With Tasha Phelps, CEO of Phelco Technologies Inc.  Watch episode #11 to find out.

2. Make some noise on social media today for girls – use the hashtag above and make sure that in fact, every girl DOES count.
