It's not a problem. Women have access to the same documentation as men. They have access to the same tools. If they need their own special environment, they can gather like-minded people and start their own companies or projects. There is nothing stopping them.

Forcing existing cultures to change just because you want to be a part of them is nothing short of tyranny. 1) you will be resented. 2) the culture you eventually join will not the be culture that existed at the start. On the other hand, if you join a culture and learn to live within it, it will change for the better simply due to your interactions within it. The more people like you that join, the more the culture changes organically, with no one being forced.

Affirmative Action is not about data, though of course data is used in enforcing it. AA is about punishing non-minorities for accidents of birth. Data is a tool, but not the purpose or goal.
