I’ve just read an outstanding essay on the paucity of women in high-tech jobs, and the stubbornly persistent (and demonstrably counterfactual) belief that it is caused, not by natural differences between the sexes, but by an invisible fog of sexism.
I’d sum up its arguments for you, but it’s so good you should go and read it yourself. You can do so here.
The article concerns itself entirely with sexism, and stops short of addressing either the statistical distribution of IQ, or the question of why blacks and Hispanics are likewise under-represented in these jobs — but as the Good Book says, “sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof”. The author is a young man, and would understandably like to have a chance at some sort of career.
