I think you'd get the same results if you ran this survey for US IT workers as well.
Gender equality is important, but I think people often go about it the wrong way. Do some companies have glass ceilings and/or a sexist bias in their hiring? Certainly, and we should work to eliminate that kind of backwards thinking. But the lack of women doesn't actually indicate those things - correlation does not imply causation, after all. We don't have a lot of women in our IT organization or in our company's executive team, but I know for a fact that it's not discrimination; it's that few women apply for the job. Imposing quotas, and other such affirmative action programs, are not the solution. They are in and of themselves unfair - they assume that everyone is doing it wrong and needs to be scolded.
