What the hell are you talking about? You want to call me a misogynist, you don't know SHIT about me.
Managers are going to insulate project against risk that someone might leave FOR ANY REASON. I'm talking there are two types of workers: Ones who are driven to work for the company and ones who want to work 9-5 and go home for to their families. It's a life choice, MALE or FEMALE.
I'm saying where I work, in terms of women, both groups are pretty equally represented. We have driven women, who receive the support they need to be promoted up to the highest levels and it's not just one. It's a huge distribution. Then we have women who are more home oriented, and they are well represented in my area (tech) as well. Managers are not going to select their next star project member from the latter group, men or women.
so seriously get off your high horse, and listen to what people are actually saying, not your ridiculous narrative of oppression and patriarchy.
