This is a great blog post on gaslighting and how it affects and ultimately deters women in society from moving forward. A wonderful read, check it out!
Sign up for this wonderful event and learn some valuable skills ladies:
We’re a Toronto-based not-for-profit organization providing women (and men*) the opportunity to learn beginner-friendly computer programming and other technical skills through hands-on workshops. We’re all about showing people that learning to hack can be fun! Almost 2000 women (and men) have participated in one of our workshops since August 2011, and after receiving many requests to offer workshops outside of Toronto, we’ve decided to finally go for it! London, here we come!
This article discusses how this new term “brogrammer” has completely left out women from the new programming terminology. Even companies that are hiring, are specifically targeting and looking for men in their advertising. Posters at a recent Stanford career fair tried to entice computer science graduates by asking, “Want to bro down and crush code? Klout is hiring.” This completely leaves out women in even their idea of who they want working for them. It’s absolutely outrageous that in today’s day and age large companies are using sexist job posts that completely exclude women. Then we wonder why there are so few women in software, while they are blatantly not welcome in these “frat boy mentality startups”.
