People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.

Watch the powerful Verizon advertisement to really understand what a little girl hears when you tell her she’s pretty.

This is so important. Girls pay attention. Boys, if you are a brother, father, cousin of a girl, pay attention.

This is CRITICAL

Smart Girls, we think you’re pretty brilliant :)

This is why I want daughters… they’ll be amazing

The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.

Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture (via hqlines)

Everybody “wants” to be rich. They want to have nice things. They want that big house. They want that lambo parked outside of their house. They want to start their own companies and be their own boss. Everyone “wants” to be successful BUT NOT EVERYONE WANTS IT SO BAD THEY NEED IT. 

"If you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, you will be successful." - Eric Thomas
