I am absolutely against quotas. The best person should get the job. But stop discriminating against women.
Here is my problem with this discussion. Everyone assumes that there are no women in IT because they don't "choose it". But what about those that chose it and remain unemployed? Got my degree in CIS last year. I have a pile of rejection letters a mile high. Every tech job that I interviewed for.. they hired a man half my age. A couple of whom I had actually trained... grrrr... The only jobs that people were interested in hiring me for were web design jobs. How sexist is that? Especially since I have absolutely NO graphic arts talent. I guess because I'm a woman I'm supposed to grasp it? Sorry.. I'm much better at troubleshooting and customer service.
I feel like I totally wasted my education. I've stopped sending out IT resumes.. going back into accounting. At least they don't discriminate against women.
