Fewer Female Software Engineers than thought?

Although there are some signs that the number of women involved in computing such as software engineers has been increasing, an engineer at Pinterest, Tracy Chou, has discovered that based on 107 companies, that number is about 12%, ┬ároughly half that reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Much more work is needed in this research , but Ms. Chou’s numbers “at least tell us which companies are doing a better job of hiring women to build their software”.

A short but worthy read.
