  1. Hollywood Plans to Create “The Female MacGyver,” and They Want Your Help

    No, I said MacGyver. God.

    Less than 20% of engineering bachelor degrees are currently going to women, and that number's only been getting lower in recent years. So what are we as a society to do about this when we need engineers more than ever? Obviously changing the culture to be more welcoming to women would help, but that's a slow process.

This is not one of them.
