Hidden Figures was one of the best movies that I've ever seen before! Watching this movie made me realize that minorities have made a huge dent in the STEM world but there is so much more work to do. Most of the times women are hidden Figures in the work place and I sometimes wonder why is this? Are women inferior to men? Of course they are not but I think society still has to realize this!! There has been numerous amounts of research that has been done that proves that the male brain and the femal brain operates the same. There is no proven research that states the male brain has "the smart DNA". Which debunks the theory that boys are smarter than girls or vice versa.
After watching this movie twice I have realized that educators should make an effort to crash the digital divide amongst women and men. I think this movie should be shown to every student! It's a must see!
