When society indoctrinates girls to take risks and abide imperfection just like the boys do, everybody wins. Education advocate Reshma Saujani founded Girls Who Code to help girls develop a high tolerance for mistakes and flaws by learning how to program. In the process, they also learn to be brave. getAbstract recommends Saujani’s stirring talk to all women who yearn to leave their comfort zones but need a push, as well as to recruiters and educators responsible for bringing more women into the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.
