Every technology technology talk today focuses on the terrible patriarchy that is embedded in the system, the way women simply do not get a chance and the proof is that not many women do such a thing. The explanations range from that insistence on all of that being patriarchy by being a simple result of the capitalism of James Damor's point that perhaps women simply do not want to make a lot of money. Given the scientific support for that last of Simon Baron Cohen, we are prone to Dumour's view, the least possible.
Our more detailed answer would be based on the fact that marginal autistic types – see Baron Cohen's work – who live in the technology industry, by definition, are social shortcomings. It may be a bit too rough, maybe not quite as other people in social interactions. So, pick up all the geniuses in the universe in a mountain from the West and you're done with a socially awkward place that explains Silicon Valley and we stick to it.
But for Dr. Nancy Grace Roman. If there is direct discrimination against women, then this stubbornness of NASA would have suffered. As it happens, the BBC tells us not:
The awards are paid by Dr. Nancy Grace Roman, the first woman to be an executive in the US space agency NASA. Dr. Roman was known as "Hubble's mother" for her work in the early stages of the Hubble Space Telescope. Our said that its most important legacy is the advancement of women in the sciences and the generations of young scientists that inspired them. She died in Maryland on Wednesday at the age of 93.
Good, great, but it must be difficult, the fight against patriarchy?
In a video published by NASA in February, Dr. Roman said she had never had problems with her NASA colleagues. "I was very accepted as a scientist in my work," she said. "Men were very cooperative and I felt that men treated me as one of the team with no problem."
It is, in fact, how it tends to be. When there is a hard measurement system – how it can make sums – then the ranking system tends to be based on that measurement system rather than gender.
