Found via Greg Wilson: DevChixs’ GloriaJW has a great article on gender barriers in tech communities. And as Greg also points out, the article’s comments add interesting angles to the post.

    A mutual friend tells me there are 13 women out of 220+ students in 3rd and 4th year Computer Science at UofT. Yikes.

    Oh wow.

    I’ve heard of some initiatives to increase the number of women at CS in U of T. There was one event recently, GR8 Designs for GR8 Girls, for grade 8 girls. Hope it helps buck the trend.
