I’m a female freeCodeCamper and while I’m personally fairly early in terms of coding I’ve worked in tech for 8 years.

I don’t think you can take StackOverflow’s userbase and say it’s fully representative of female coders. Sure, we’re outnumbered but I think many females coders may not use StackOverflow (or may read and not have accounts). StackOverflow is at the end of the day, a community, not a fully representative population sample.
