Look I know that this is super nit-picky, and it’s not what you meant but it also really annoys me…

STEM subjects, I’d have thought, precede coding, do they not? I’m not a coder, so correct me if I’m wrong, but saying there aren’t enough women doing STEM so they should learn to code, is that not putting the cart before the horse?

Is it not such an apt acronym because all sorts of higher level skills stem from those subjects? Is it not that STEM subjects need to be made more attractive (or perhaps less off-putting!) to girls of school age so that, from that imbalance correction, more women will then naturally flow into coding and other underrepresented skill industries?

What am I missing here?
