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!

To Libra,

We're concerned about the message you send to young girls with your new 'absorbs way more than you ever did in maths class' advertising campaign. We call on you to remove the adverts immediately. 

Signed,

Fair Agenda will email petition signers from time to time with important updates

"This is disgraceful. You don’t need to be a math nerd or a research scientist to see the harm that such a campaign has on young women. Libra should be using its reach to empower women, not reduce them to dumb housewives. Have a look at your advertising values and pull this campaign."

"Perpetuates the stereotype that women cannot to Maths, which is completely untrue."
