Personally I never saw that problem in all the companies I worked, but I can see how making yourself more prominent in tech can lead to harassment,

Would this not be the same in any industry or even worse?

We are probably the most vocal community and thus generating more conversations about it, but I don't see a lot of women in the construction fields, and I can picture them having a pretty bad experience there. What about any industry where the boss is a jerk that want to get laid?

I'm kind of joining some of you guys in wondering what the movements about getting more women involved in tech is about, I don't really think it needs more or less,

Like probably no one would start a movement to get more guys in a predominant women profession? frankly who cares?




The construction industry having a sexism problem isn't a reason for another industry to stop striving to be better.

> Like probably no one would start a movement to get more guys in a predominant women profession? frankly who cares?

That kind of wrong-headed, "Why are there no MOWO awards?!!" reasoning doesn't help either. The situations that the different genders find themselves in with regards to employment aren't really comparable.
