"I highlight this imbalance because graphic and media design has a perception as a feminine subject."
Couldn't agree more!

And it's funny because during a long time I've been the only girl on the Devs team, and I've always been good with CSS, but I honestly can't tell how much of my expertise got better because I really enjoy working with CSS and how much was because the team always seemed to assign the design/css tasks to me, the girl of the team lol

Couldn't agree with you more!

In my experience, there is always a resident CSS expert and everything goes to them. I've been in this situation before but I think the whole team can benefit from trying to get CSS. I've found pair programming is a great way to share CSS knowledge with others and get them more excited about CSS.

Unfortunately most developers don’t see value in improving their CSS skills. However it’s not gender related IMO, at least not in the companies I have been working for.
