I've written many times about the gender disparity in science. It's important to support girls who are interested in STEM -- Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. I just found a new site that I think helps: Smart Girls at the Party. It's done by SNL alumna Amy Poehler, who cracks me up, and two other women. They make videos where they interview young women interested in STEM, and the videos are, well... see for yourself. Find more videos like this on Smart Girls at the Party This video made me laugh; it's supportive and funny, snarky and warm. I think a lot of young girls would really like it... though caveat emptor, I am not nor ever have been a young girl. I welcome comments from women and girls on this. What do you think?
