Re: IT screen goddesses

I emailed them to ask about qualifications to be a "Screen Goddess":

"Qualification - passion for technology, be confident, comfortable person who is brave enough to manage media interviews etc.  SOmeone who is not afraid to have a little fun (lighten up) whilst also knowing that it is about the bigger picture of technology careers and how amazing they are." 

I think it's perfectly fine to publicize that women can be both brilliant with IT and beautiful at the same time. :o)

Actually, I think it's a great idea to do something like this to gain publicity
and counter some of the stereotypes about people in general and women in
particular, who work in IT.  You might like to spead the word to other relevant
groups and consider buying one of the calendars for themselves.

Is it smashing stereotypes or promoting objectification of women? I
don't see how this is helpful at all; it is not marketed to women. As if
women in technology are not already fetishized enough.
