    Yeah, pretty accurate. Even if you look into any product catalogues or flyers of any shop or warehouse selling toys, you’ll see stuff for “young adventurers, explorers, repairsmen, scientists, builders” and on second page “little mom, nurse, cook, hairdresser, housemaid”. Pretty sad when something as subtle as flyer stgmatises you right from childhood.

    It’s so true! During all my career I met only 2 (!) females engineers involved in real work.
