a lot of low paying, back breaking, labor jobs are 99% men and nobody cares enough to get women to take those jobs.
Bring in the blue collar jobs in IT, suddenly they want equality because those are better paying jobs that don't need a lot of physical back breaking labor.
Females just don't seem to have an interest in IT, only 18% people taking IT classes are female. Both males and females get bullied because they do well in math and science but somehow the females get discouraged from it and move on to something else. Males get bullied too but don't get discouraged from it. Maybe cracking down on bullying will make more females take up IT classes because bullies call females who take IT as not feminine.
Minorities, it is basically a poverty problem, they cannot afford tuition and college to earn the IT degree. They cannot afford the home computer to learn on, and they might be in a financial situation because their father left them or went into prison. You'd have to get a fund to get them home computers and low cost Internet and then scholarships for IT degrees.
