When Women Stopped Coding

This article alerts that women may have stopped coding because the gaming/film industry pushed the personal computers to males.

Having studied in schools where girls were around 60% of the total students, at the university I got the shock of seeing that girls studying Computer Sciences represented around 10% of the course students while in some other courses they were 95%. As a consequence, most of the people I end up working with are men.

Come on, girls! Don't let a stereotype beat you. This is the 21th century and everyone should be oblivious of genre discrimination by now.
