There is a significant problem in getting women to get tech degrees

When my mom was in tech (back in the days of the mainframe, minicomputer and FORTRAN, about 30%-40% of her co-workers were women. It is definitely less than that now.

My mom used to tell me that this was largely due to IT being an acceptable role for women, because they weren't meeting customers and it was a pretty new field--so not traditionally male.
