Please don't take this article to heart.
Please don't be discouraged. I'm female and have been working in IT for over 10 years. There are plenty of jobs in IT where you can work almost exclusively 9-5. Like ANY job there will be times where a critical project is overrunning and you have to put in a few extra hours, or if you are dealing with hardware you can't always do things within standard office hours because you can't disrupt the users, but for me (primarily application development with a side order of consultancy and general IT support) I mainly work standard office hours. I have also managed to have a child and am now working part time so be assured that it is possible to have a family too!
