Re: IT has a problem with fair treatment of women
"Does it? What's your evidence?"
I can't quantify attitudes, but let's stick our fingers in the air and ask the Google gods which way the wind is blowing...
Lots of lovely positive stories about how men are rare in midwifery, but being accepted. And that's for a profession that can understandably have a sex difference to it - i.e. being a woman shouldn't matter when you're flying a plane, or cooking food, but conducting an intimate examination? You can see where sex makes a difference here.
Lots of support groups aimed at trying to get women into technology, or supporting their goals once they're in. There is a demand here.
In the end, it doesn't matter one whit if women, as a horrible generalisation, decide they don't want to go into technology. The problem is that we shouldn't be making the ones that do uncomfortable.
And the industry has a history of making women feel uncomfortable.
