Nevertheless, Lara Coded

  • In my country unlike the rest of the world almost 80% of the students in Computer Engineering major are females.
  • The top 5 in my batch were girls.
  • when we get into the work force the percentage drops down to 50%.
  • When I look at the senior developers and team leaders they are all males!

Something is not right going on in here!

For some reasons girls are at the top in the classroom, but falling behind in the real world!

Well guess what, time's up!

My advice for allies to support women who code is....

we are not your enemies but your allies as well. Gives us a chance to prove what we are capable of. Don't judge us based on our gender but based on our work. Ask yourselves all the time, if gender is not real, would I do this and that? would I hire this person? would I make this person feels more welcome? would I have said that? etc..

Finally, just be kind to everyone, we all have our own battles to fight, let us just be kind and tender to make this world a better place.
