If she signed any paperwork that consented to the app being installed, she pretty much waived any rights to privacy. The article doesn't specify, but I'm sure she signed something that allowed her employers to do this. Is it an invasion of privacy? No. You can't consent to something, and then revoke consent later on.

Great link! I'm not saying women are inferior, but there is a difference to how men and women view and interact with the world around them. However, there's this belief that we are all fully equal in every way, and to suggest otherwise is misogyny. That's not true. We are different. We need to stop thinking of that difference as being inferior, and just move the hell on.

"It may be about reframing the goals of engineering research and curriculums to be more relevant to societal needs. It is not just about gender equity — it is about doing better engineering for us all." Well, Nilsson is correct, in part. It's not about gender equality. It's about reorganizing an entire field of study to cater to a targeted group. That is not gender equality, it's feminist ideology. In today's society, if you cannot compete, the rules of play are changed. There's no incentive to become better; to improve yourself and demonstrate that you are a capable person.
