I'm glad your wife hasn't been affected by this. But just because you don't think barriers exist doesn't mean they don't exist. I spent much of the past year following issues around women in tech and talking to women about their experiences. Not everyone runs into horrible behavior, but the vast majority do.

Here's some good reading from women speaking out about what they encounter in the industry. Nobody should have to put up with this.

Feed Courage, not Fear [^]

Gender Bias 101 For Mathematicians[^]

That's just the top of my list. I have many more.

To be fair, this isn't just an issue with the tech industry, nor is it just about women. There are also problems with underrepresentation and barriers to entry based on race and socioeconomic status. In theory, tech (particularly programming) is equal opportunity. The reality is different.

How White Male Tech Writers Feed the Silicon Valley Myth of Meritocracy[^]

These are societal issues. We can't fix society. We can try to make positive change in our corner of it, however.
