This cover speaks volumes! Stem has been the focus for many years BUT not for women of color and not for WOMEN at all for a matter of fact. This is why there is still a lack of women of color in the tech workforce. Many times young ladies don’t see hero’s like the one on the magazine cover. Action figures are nearly obsolete if a women is considered a character. So I charge you! Influencers of the younger generation to use movies like Hidden Figures and Black Panthers as a stepping stone in getting more girls interested in STEM and actually majoring in STEM fields!
