Women are indeed taking over the world. Be it any field, women are excelling and succeeding with grace. A few years back when people did not capable women of doing much, it is them who are bringing change in various industries.
One such industry that women have changed the equation of is the technology industry. Earlier, it was hard for people to even imagine a woman techie, but now, the situation is not the same. Women have indeed made their place in the industry. From Annie Easley to Radia Perlman to Chelsea Brown, women have paved their way in the industry.
When it came down to the tech industry, the one thing that pulled women back was gender inequality. It was supposed that only men can excel in the tech industry; this industry is not meant for women. But that has indeed changed over the past few decades. The misogynistic and sexist conversations have brought major changes in the western world.
Women are taken more seriously in the tech industry. There has been a gradual increase in female employees in the tech industry, about a 2.9 per cent increase. In the future, around 2030, it is also predicted that more than three million young women would be working in the tech industry.
This change did not come fast, it took a lot of years to bring this. Although there are still problems that women are facing in the industry related to inequality and lower pay scale, this is predicted to shrink.
The power of women has been seen by the tech industry. The nation has seen how a woman can work and even rule this industry which was earlier considered a men-centric industry.
Looking at this, now more and more women are enrolling in computing courses, and opting for careers in technology-related fields. It is important to keep recognising and celebrating the achievements of women in this industry.
