Why is it important to get young females involved in coding?

Coding was popularly known to be a men's field that is very complex to be understood by females, but that's no longer the case. We need to get rid of this misconception and move towards involving young women and empowering them with skills that are going to be in demand in the near future.

Some of the misconceptions

The software development industry has been predominately known as a men's job that has been solely reserved for this gender but it doesn't have to be that way. We are slowly moving away from the dogmatic programming that also allowed a certain gender to participate in activities that others cannot be involved in. There are ongoing initiatives and programs that aim to get rid of this stigma and get young women to be part of the technological advancements that are currently taking place on a global scale.

Jobs of the future

Careers are no longer the same, artificial intelligence and machine learning are revolutionizing the way we work and live. This can only mean one thing, some of the jobs are bound to be paced out and replaced by robots that are much more faster and accurate. Empowering women with coding skills that will enable them to thrive in such a world is invaluable.
