Women in IT? Why Not?

I have been watching the ‘Women in IT’ movement grow over the past several years, and I truly do applaud women who want a career in IT.  However I do not think that women deserve any special consideration for being women in the professional world.

A friend of mine, Melinda Thrasher, wrote a great article recently on her views.  I applaud her initiative and know that she will make it in the field – not because she is a woman, but because she is smart.  That is what it takes, and if women feel they are persecuted in the field then I have not seen it in reality.

Read Melinda’s article here… it’s an interesting read from a woman on the verge of entering the IT field! http://techxygirl.posterous.com/women-in-tech-breaking-perceptions
