Hi Imelda,

The ‘can’t see it; can’t be it’ slogan has really caught on and has been used to excellent effect by various sporting organisations. ’20×20′ was another similar campaign in recent years. It’s great that your school has ben able to partner with some organisations to give girls a taste of various careers. I know that the girls school in our locality has a close partnership with SAP, and they are brought on field trips each year in an effort to increase the number of women working in these fields. I find the task about drawing a scientist to be very interesting – the ‘mad scientist’ is the first image that does spring to mind, and further serves to illustrate the unconscious gender stereotyping that we are often consuming.
