NewsWhat India Can Teach Silicon Valley About Its Gender Problem Pin

Silicon Valley has been wracked with controversies about sexism lately. Only 17 percent of Google's technical employees are women. Tech conference organizers routinely post speaker lists that skew male. The female cofounder of Tinder was allegedly harassed and erased from corporate history last year. Yet some people still minimize the problem.

Their argument: Since the tech industry is populated by meritocratic rationalists, it would be impossible for a talented female engineer not to rise to the top. Therefore, if few women are in the industry, the problem is not sexism but the absence of some innate capacity or interest on the part of (most) women. In other words, the dearth of women in tech is only natural.

Having grown up in India and worked as a coder in the US, I find this line of reasoning specious.
What say CodeProject on the matter?
