Short Bytes: Do you think that girls can’t code? To break such stereotypes and start a much-needed conversation, a non-profit organization Girls Who Code has produced a satirical video series called Girls Do Code.
Coding is the new lingua franca of the present age. But, for girls, entering into this male-dominant field is simply impossible because they have too many distractions in their lives — right?
This is how a lot of people, with their sexist and outdated mindsets, think and carry pre-conceived notions about the things that girls can do and can’t do.
To kill these worthless stereotypes, Girls Who Code has produced a 3-part video series called Girls Do Code.
The non-profit organization has used satire and straight-up humor that’s depicted brilliantly by the girls.
“There are already a ton of inspirational videos about why girls should code,” Reshma Saujani, founder and CEO of Girls Who Code, said in a release.
She says that their team tried to do something different to spark a conversation and create a more non-sexist image of a programmer.
