But this well-meaning stunt
is just disgraceful. More than half of those women trained in the science and engineering fields leave them prematurely, and an even larger proportion have experienced sexual harassment and/or discrimination on the job. The solution to these systemic problems is not--I repeat, not
--reinventing oneself as a Spice Girl who codes. As if expectations placed on women these days aren't bad enough. So it's not enough to be a rocket scientist? You have to be sexy too? Puh-leeze. I don't see any glossy pinups of Bill Gates in a speedo.
Oh, and newsflash: Five-inch stilettos aren't liberating...they just give you bunions.
