As promised in this story about Legally Blonde The Musical, currently showing at The Beck Center... "Science! It's a girl thing!" from the European Commission to recruit girl into careers traditionally considered male dominated careers.
No doubt, a descendent of “Girl Power” is out there. We can see it standing boldly and clearly in the controversial 2012 “Science, it’s a girl thing!” viral video, published by the European Commission to recruit girls into the careers in the sciences. (The original video was actually removed because of the strong negative response to the sexualization of the female “scientists” in the video.) So what now? What do the 13 year-olds of 2012 get out of this 2007 musical Legally Blonde, based on a 2001 movie that uses the same jokes and the same issues? Does “Girl Power” work today, or did it ever?
