Being a geek I know that there aren’t many girls who are interested in the wide world of technology. It doesn’t mean that they aren’t good at it. Girls are equal powered as boys but some social beliefs keep them away from pursuing career in tech industry.  It isn’t like that girls who pursue courses related to technology aren’t successful.  Just recently 18-year-old girl won Intel’s Young Scientist Award for creating a supercharger. Even Yahoo is headed by a female (Marissa Mayer).

Folks over at Play-i.com created an infographic which looks at some reasons why girls hold themselves back from pursuing computer science in particular. Times are changing and girls need to get with it and sexists need to eat some shit!
