I first came across this cliché-ridden clip and comments on it at two French blogs:

http://bigbrowser.blog.lemonde.fr/2012/06/29/cliche-la-commission-europeenne-voit-la-science-en-rose-pour-les-filles/

and was pleased to find something in English at the Guardian:

pink, lipstick, killer heels, simpering movements, no show of professional competency. Not to mention a bimbo-normative assault on the joys of geek culture!
