Stereotypes Of A Girl In Computer Science

Satisfactory Essays
As a girl in Computer Science, there are various stereotypes associated with the female computer scientist. There have been situations I have seen or dealt with that could be avoided if females were perceived in the same way as males are in this field. Whether it comes down to ability or gender, it can be hard to differentiate whether the situation is a gender-based one or an ability based one. How can we handle scenarios when the criticism is being made solely because the gender plays a role as opposed to one's ability? As a follow-up question, how can we help change the mindsets of the people around us to a more accepting attitude of breaking gender roles?
