As usual there is a great woman behind every idiot.
I always noticed that there are much less women in my computer science classes than in my other classes. Some basic statistics from my life include: 0 female CS Professors at BYU, 0 female developers at my current job, 1 female dev over the course of all my CS jobs, and less than 10 percent female students in any of my CS classes. I honestly don't know why there aren't more women in my field of study. I find computer programming absolutely amazing and I bet many women would too. Perhaps our society does not expose women to the wonders of programming very well. This is a shame--women tend to smell much better than the nerdy men in my office.
