Who Thought This Was A Good Idea?

Good Idea: Encourage girls to pursue careers in math & science by identifying strong female role models in those fields.

Bad Idea: Scrapping the project because real female engineers aren't telegenic enough.

Worse Idea: Creating a soap opera about fictional female scientists instead.

*Snork* I'm sure this TV project (which has not found a buyer yet) would do as much for the respect of women in science as "General Hospital" did for doctors.

Maybe we should, oh, put a few CS/EE departments through sensitivity training instead.
