Yeah. Women in tech. I’ve been seeing it for 20+ years — nothing this blatant, but it’s there. That is not to say that all guys working in tech are sexist — some get it and some don’t.
Interestingly, my teacher hubby was having a sexism conversation with his students after seeing Hidden Figures. His students (high school boys) all said, “But this stuff doesn’t happen anymore.” He thought about having me come to speak with them about reality, but he’s afraid of what I might say — which is more about me and my mouthiness than it is about any of my sexism stories.
And there seem to be LESS women in tech coming out of school now than when I started out all those years ago — what’s that all about?
