Women often face the challenge of being overlooked or interrupted in conversations, a reality combated by phrases such as “Stop interrupting me,” and “No explanation needed”. This issue is particularly prevalent in male-dominated fields like science and engineering. However, many women, such as Maria Klawe, President of Harvey Mudd College, have overcome these hurdles to achieve great success. It’s essential to instill confidence in girls and reassure them that they can flourish despite inherent gender biases.
Redefining failure and encouraging a growth mindset is crucial in shaping our daughters’ path to success.
