So, why does it suck to be a woman in IT? Well, perhaps some of it's the gossip that starts when a woman starts working too closely with male team members. Maybe it's having your arguments dismissed because a woman wouldn't know what she's talking about? Maybe it's the feeling that you're just a quota filler?
They are all brilliant and I love them all dearly. No one has ever meant me harm, but almost on a daily basis I have to deal with some situation that just wouldn’t happen if I wasn’t a woman.
But is it enough to tell woman to stop going into the high paying field of engineering and computer technology, and instead tell them to embrace the subsistence pay of daycare and hair dressing? Maybe.
