Women in the IT Industry

December 18, 2012
Recently there has been more attention focused on women in the IT industry because there are so few. A 1998 Association for Computing Machinery report stated that women compose less than one third of the nation's computer scientists and programmers, barely twice that of 1988- less than half a million women holding only 20 percent of the jobs. This is, at least in part, explained by a 1997 Global Strategy Group poll that found that 49 percent of the college-bound females they interviewed said that the tech industry is too boring, difficult, or technical.
