I love this initiative by Google because of these sad but real truths:
When it comes to computer science, millions of girls are being left out of the conversation. Despite earning the majority of bachelor’s degrees in the U.S., women earn fewer than 20 percent of computer science degrees, with serious implications for our economy and for women at large.
Consequently, this movie, Codegirl is now free to watch:
Our goal is to inspire as many students as possible during this special five-day free viewing period before it hits theaters. With your help, we’ll be able to inspire more girls around the world to pursue their passions in tech.
I hope that they are committed to more than just giving away free movies though. There’s so much we can do for women in tech and I hope things get dramatically better for the sake of my own two girls and the rest of the world!
