Re: Why the Widening Gender Gap in Computer Science?
CS is a pretty damned broad definition (PDBD).
Overall, there may be few women studying in the discipline, and it's
natural to ask why, but nobody seems (unless there's an article I
missed) to be asking about women's involvement in specific streams/
majors/ minors/ concentrations.
Is/are there a/-few field/s within CS where more women tend to
study/teach/work? AI? Data structures? Languages/programming? Project
The next question: where is the money/status in the field? There are
never as many generals as there are grunts. There are lots of
programmers, but fewer database admins/managers.
Neither the NYT article, nor the blog that Vid linked to, addressed more
That says there are some really bad journos trying to cover IT.
Context is 9/10 of the law.
