This same kind of psychological effect came during the Vietnam war when soldiers would be fighting one day and a few days later, back home in the States. This created great stress on returning vets.

If you have to help, encourage, hand-up, set aside jobs, reconstruct the work culture and environment for, women, then they just aren't motivated to do it, whatever it is, including tech. Women are half the population of the world and the species. You can't keep them from doing what they want to do. If they naturally do not want to do tech, leave it be.

This continuing war on males and male attributes must end if we desire to continue as a powerhouse of tech in the world.
