Is there sexism in the work place? You bet. Look at the report at CBS news about women in the technology business. Several women published a manifesto calling for change. See CBS news report. The female techies say they have been pranked (porn left on their computer screen when they leave their work station), attended meetings which became attempted dates, and treated to derogatory, sexist emails by their male co-workers. See their manifesto here. The women include workers at Adobe Systems, Mozilla, BuzzFeed, Kickstarter, and Stripe.
Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer at Facebook, says she has heard the excuses for not hiring more women in the technology industry. One executive said he would like to hire more women but his wife fears he would sleep with them and, he added, he probably would.
All I can say is the technology industry will learn its lesson the hard way…..
