Verizon Made A Powerful Ad About What You’re Actually Telling A Girl When You Tell Her She’s Pretty

4. It lists shocking statistics like the fact that 66% of 4th grade girls say they’re interested in science and math, but by college only 18% of engineering majors are female.

5. Verizon’s built a resource site for the initiative, as well.
