Women-only Scholarships

If you want (more) women engineers, do the following:

  • Don’t kill your daughter right after she is born.
  • After successful completion of the previous step, instead of buying her a barbie, buy her a lego kit.

The last step is figurative, of course. What I really mean is that the only effective way to inculcate a technical mindset is attempting to do that early on. Giving out easy scholarships to twenty year olds because of their gender just produces more bad engineers, and that is the last thing we need.
