Intimidated?

Despite the fact that most people agree that Computer Science shouldn’t be a field dominated by males, the fact remains that men far outnumber women in IT. This alone can deter girls from studying the subject as they feel intimidated by the computer knowledge of their male peers. Girls presume that everyone studying computer science has years and years of experience with programming and endless knowledge of computers, when in fact most students entering first year of college will be starting completely from scratch. 

This video explains what may deter girls from computer science, it shows CS from a female perspective and will definitely inspire you to take a closer look into IT as a career choice!
