My other niece works for Disney.com . My former roommate is now a software engineering intern in Mountain View.
Women can do it. The question is why are male hiring managers and execs so afraid of hiring them?
There's no reason to be afraid. They don't bite.
What world are you living in? Women working in technology are so rare that tech companies bend over backwards to find and hire qualified women. In fact, given the choice of an equally qualified man or woman, tech companies will damn near always choose the woman.
Of course women can do the work. The argument is that they generally don't want to do the work. There's about a million other jobs that women find more interesting. Hence, discussions like this talking about the lack of women in technology.
