When it comes to entering a male-dominated field like tech, there's a lot standing in a girl's way.

The videos focus on three main topics that, according to misguided popular opinion, keep girls from being successful coders: boobs, beauty and menstruation.

There are already a ton of inspirational videos about why girls should code, Reshma Saujani, founder and CEO of Girls Who Code, said in a release.

"We wanted to try something different ... Our hope is these videos will spark a much-needed conversation about the messages we send our young women, and what we can do to create a more inclusive, well-rounded image of a programmer."

Girls are constantly shamed for being "too sensitive" and their bodies labeled "too distracting" to men in school or the workplace.

According to Adweek, the campaign may also move to television, depending on donated media.
