“It’s not just about writing the code, but you have stand up for your code and defend your code, and there is a certain male attitude that is endemic in many projects where a woman would just not feel comfortable claiming that she is right,” he explained. “A guy who knows less than that woman might honestly believe [he is right], so they present a much more confident image.”
..because men are supposedly better at defending, or what?

Any woman who works in science needs to withstand peer-pressure and defend their claims. None of them have complained yet about the unfair advantages of men.

If someone is not comfortable about claiming that they are right, it is usually not gender-based, but based on them judging theirself and their (lack of) knowledge. If you can explain why you are right, then that is a non-problem.
