Women in tech

Sometimes people who use pseudoscience to confirm what they think is actual fact. I was listening to a radio show today and they were discussing the whole Google incident. And one of their guess who who was the male informed that they have done studies macro studies metadata studies that determined that women cognitively are no different than men when it comes to logic and thinking. So for any man who was stating that this is the only reason why women should not be allowed in the technology field was complete bunk. Now I say all of this to say when I was in high school which I went to Western I had of computer science teacher who was a female I can't remember her name maybe one of my Western Dive know who she is. Who literally encouraged me to go into the technology failed because she said I had the mind for it. I appreciate the fact that that woman gave me that type of encouragement when nobody else thought I should have went into the Technology field for that she was the only person that I had even the counselors were skeptical of me going into technology because of how the field was stacked back then. Even till today it's the same thing. Women have an uphill battle. So I feel as though that being a woman in technology is a great thing I would encourage any other woman or female to do so. Our minds are not limited. I would love to see in the future even now of more women in technology and science in general and for the most part I think going forward that will be what will decrease the pay Gap, increase the number of minorities as well as women in that field itself. #techmesomething
