A Few Awesome Young Women
Just to remind you that there are, in fact, some pretty darn awesome young women (and not just bigoted Girl Scouts) around the place, I thought I’d share a few things.
1. A young woman who is currently living in a homeless shelter has been selected as a semifinalist for the Intel Science competition. Watch this to see her and her wonderful teacher talking about her project. (via Pharyngula)
2. I tweeted this one earlier this week on the teenskepchicks twitter account (Follow us!), but Mark sent it in to us via the contact form (thanks, Mark!), and I figured it was too cool and warranted more than a measly tweet.
[Aside: She was on YouTube when she was 11? YouTube didn’t even exist when I was 11! Now I feel old. Or in awe of how fast technology is moving. Or old. Mainly just old.]
3. I’m sure everybody already knows this, but Jessica Ahlquist won her lawsuit! She has also been incredibly brave in the face of threatening messages, so if you get a chance make sure to send her your support.
So there you go. Three awesome teens to make up for one less-than-awesome one.
