And if we are not being treated right, then we can’t blame ourselves anymore. We’re not going to get the change we need by working on “getting better” at what we do. We are good enough as we are and it is time that we get the recognition and respect that we deserve. Point Blank.
The problem is not women- we are “Leaning In” and showing up. We always have been. We were getting more computer science degrees 30 years ago than we are getting today. And have been entering the industry, and then we have been leaving for good reasons. We aren’t getting funded or we aren’t getting promoted- we’re being harassed, abused or embarrassed in the work place. It is our problem, but it is not our fault.
