Emoji crazy
Looks like Google just jumped on the emoji train as well with these new female career emojis! There will be 33 new emojis made for women that were previously only in male form, including a doctor, scientist, chef, handyperson, farmer and welder! They're also racially diverse, so there are lots of options. Maybe not groundbreaking stuff but pretty fun.

Re: Women in tech
Kelsey - I had no idea either! I'd definitely like to look into your question about Orthodox women working in the US. It seems like the opposite of what you would expect.

And Karlie Kloss is pretty amazing. That's only one of her side hustles. The biggest is Karlie's Kookies - not tech related but delicious! ; )

Women in tech
The stats about orthodox women in Israel working in tech really caught my attention. I wonder if there are more women in the tech industry in orthodox communities in the U.S. as well. I took a look at the Kode with Karlie link; that sounds like an amazing program and a great way to get young women interested in computer science.
