Jessie Frazelle is still a rara avis in tech, the architect, so adept and expert in her deep dive specialty that she makes excellent offhand jokes and conveys her coolest innovations with a wonderful, piratical glee. Of course she inspires malice and hate from lesser practitioners. She does all of this while female. I'm a hard tech sysadmin, female and of a certain age. The nastiest treatment I receive is from men over 50. She (and I) aren't supposed to revel in being good at what we do, we're not properly deferential, we TELL MEN THEY ARE WRONG (that's the mortal sin). I likely get a bye from trolls under 40, because I'm older, I'm not as threatening. Jessie Frazelle is attacked in a personal, violent, and sexual way that should be investigated and prosecuted in order to eventually make tech safe for excellence to be gender-free.
All that said, I have found "women in computing" groups to be sadly deficient in actual tech. I come to the meetings a woman who has been deeply immersed in hardware, networking, OS, and applications for 30+ years. Find the entire group focus to be about managing tech groups or companies. Young women with essentially no tech who see tech management as a hot ticket. It's very disappointing.
Somehow, I want to spend time with the Jessie Frazelle's, listening and learning, laughing and encouraging, maybe with a few drinks. They are our treasures, protect, nurture and advance them.
