technology and gender

This is a few weeks old, but worth sharing. Jender at Feminist Philosophers asks Why are there so few women in technology fields?:

It must be their innate lack of ability, as the tech community is doing everything they can to make them feel welcome– even using images of them in powerpoint presentations! Like this one, from this conference. Reading the comments also reveals such a sophisticated understanding of feminism that one is shocked, shocked, to learn that there are very few actual women at the conference. (Thanks, Lani.)

Update: Mr Jender tells me there were 6 women out of the 200 at the conference, and he’s referred me to this post on the topic by one of those women.
