Women in Technology face unique hurdles

I was happy to see that Catalyst has finally posted their paper on the unique issues women in technology face in their careers. Reuters did a nice summary of the paper, bringing out a lot of the big points about lack of role models as well as feeling unempowered in the decision making process.  I saw Catalyst's Heather Foust-Cummings speak on this study at last year's Grace Hopper conference and the paper itself is fascinating.  It goes to show that while women have made a lot of progress in the workforce over the last 30 years, there is still more to make and we are still hitting barriers that are invisible to folks in other fields.

I find it is more discriminatory than ever now in tech jobs. Basically, women need not apply (unless you want to take a junior role, to not hurt the guys feelings).
