Here is a short description to get you excited:
Girls and women, argues Reshma Saujani, are brought up to be perfect. Boys and men, on the other hand, are taught to be brave. The result is that women sometimes don’t pursue the bold path because of fear of failure, not measuring up or because we think we have to please people.
That should all stop, says Saujani, and she would know. In 2010 she became the first Indian American woman to run for US Congress and she lost, badly. During the campaign, Saujani visited schools where she saw the gender gap in computing classes firsthand, leading her to set up Girls Who Code. The lesson? That without her brave run for office, she might never have been set on the path to setting up Girls Who Code.
