There are still biases pushing women out of STEM.
The natural communication style of men and women is still received differently. Kieran Snyder did an interesting analysis on differences in resumes men and women write. It would be interesting to delve into that finding a bit more deeply. Why do women write a different sort of resume? Does a male-style resume perform better for women than a female-style one does? We know that in some cases, male-style verbal communication can backfire on women because it violates our social norms.
Speaking of social norms... they are the topic of the latest installment in Kate Heddleston's blog series about how tech culture works against diversity.
No wonder women are angry.
