Libra's absorption problem

Just weeks after Google launched a $50 million program to help address barriers to girls involvement in the science, technology engineering and mathematics sectors; and despite evidence that stereotypes and cultural biases still impede women's success in the 'STEM' areas… Libra have rolled out this new advertising campaign.

Libra's website says they create adverts “designed to give you a smile”. 

If you're concerned about the message their latest advert sends, sign the petition and let Libra know!

"As a math-obsessed girl, with a college degree and a fair amount of brains, I can’t even count the many ways this ad insults me. Take it down or I (and my friends) will be taking my money elsewhere."

"I’m registering my disgust as the mother of 2 daughters and a granddaughter. This advertisement is demeaning and offensive. Does Libra have any intelligent women impacting on their advertisements?"
