People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.

Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.

But you can be pretty and into science, too… it’s not an either/or option… you can be into fashion and make-up and still want to work on the hadron collider. I mean, i agree that beauty shouldn’t be the ONLY thing girls are into, but it also doesn’t mean we should stop telling girls they are beautiful. say they are beautiful AND encourage them in science! 

So my sister has this organization that is geared to getting girls into STEM (Science.Technology.Engineering.Math) here in South Florida. It’s still young but doing well it’s called the Dennis Project, named after our grandmother. 

She noticed the number of females in STEM and the minuscule number of black females and it disturbed her enough to do something about it. I’m glad big companies see that girls can be in this industry as well.

The Last Japanese Mermaids 

For nearly two thousand years, Japanese women living in coastal fishing villages made a remarkable livelihood hunting the ocean for oysters and abalone, a sea snail that produces pearls. They are known as Ama. The few women left still make their living by filling their lungs with air and diving for long periods of time deep into the Pacific ocean, with nothing more than a mask and flippers.

In the mid 20th century, Iwase Yoshiyuki returned to the fishing village where he grew up and photographed these women when the unusual profession was still very much alive. After graduating from law school, Yoshiyuki had been given an early Kodak camera and found himself drawn to the ancient tradition of the ama divers in his hometown. His photographs are thought to be the only comprehensive documentation of the near-extinct tradition in existence
