In the News This topic comes up quite a lot on technology websites, but I generally try to steer clear from it as much as possible, since I'm not the one to talk about it (you know, with me being a man and all that), however, I feel it might be a good idea to just get my opinion out there and be done with it. The topic of women in IT is a hot-button issue, so let me just go out guns blazing: assuming women need special treatment, help, protection, and affirmative action is just as insulting and degrading as outright claiming women have no place in IT - maybe even more so.

Yeah, but not as doctors and surgeons, only as nurses and HUCs, least thats what I've seen in every hospital I've ever been in.

As for lawyers, in the photos I've seen of the local law offices there are few if any women pictured working in their office as full lawyers, sure they may have several women working as paralegals, but they aren't going to be the ones arguing in front of a judge, at least not any time soon.
