You can read all about it HERE, and it’s as awesome as it looks and sounds.

From the article:

Made With Code is a new Google initiative to motivate future female programmers. Only 18% of computer science degrees are earned by women, and Google is spending $50 million over the next three years to change those numbers.

More than 150 high school girls turned out for the event, including local chapters of the Girl Scouts of the USA, Black Girls Code and Girls Who Code. Kaling, a writer and actress, emceed the premiere, which brought in Google X Vice President Megan Smith, Clinton Foundation Vice Chair Chelsea Clinton, iLuminate creator Miral Kotb, Pixar Director of Photography Danielle Feinberg and UNICEF Innovation cofounder Erica Kochi.

This is so important because this will give girls a HUGE confidence boost. Girls should feel empowered to create and engineer and problem solve. I am in a class split into two sections of eighty people with SEVEN females and SEVENTY THREE males. We need more girls in this profession PLEASE learn how to code even if it’s something as simple as html you can only grow from there. Tech jobs are in such high demand and honestly, being a female is an advantage because there aren’t many in the field.

Because if you’re a librarian you should be better at Google than everyone.

The most fun a poor art history major can have without selling their soul for the ability to travel the world. 

Google maps lets you go in places now: Musee d’Orsay, The Met, Versailles, all of the places above, and tons more. I am pleased. 

WOW LIKE WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT

DAY 1.

Google kicks off Black History Month with a doodle of Harriet Tubman. Harriet Tubman is best known for setting up the Underground Railroad, a series of safe houses that helped black slaves reach freedom in the north, prior to the American Civil War. A folk operaHarriet Tubman: When I crossed that line to freedom,” is soon to be performed in Brooklyn, N.Y.  According to the author of the opera, Nigerian-American Nkeiru Okoye, this is not classical opera.  "Most of the music in Harriet Tubman is rooted in traditional African-American folk idioms," she told Voice of America. “So there are elements of gospel, jazz, blues, and then you hear a “field holler,” you hear ragtime, work songs and there are things that sound like spirituals throughout the opera.”

Shakuntala Devi was featured as Google’s doodle for today. And while this is rather nice from a perspective of Feminism, let me tell you what isn’t so nice…
She died earlier this year and I didn’t hear a single peep about it. In fact, I didn’t even know she existed until today because her accomplishments were never taught to us in school. This woman was probably an inspiration to many in the world and she completely smashed the sexist idea that STEM subjects are for men and social ones are for women. In the 1900s, no less.
Yet somehow the news of the deaths of male actors and musicians earlier this year was viewed by our society as worthwhile enough to spread in-person.
This is what feminists are talking about when we say that women and social minorities have been systematically erased from history. If it wasn’t for Google, no one here would have known about Shakuntala Devi and her accomplishments, including myself.
