Hi Dian, thanks for taking the time to answer! Yes, you're correct, it's not a balanced pool, but this has already started to change (not as quickly as I'd like, but still).

Again, you're right, I often go to meet ups with regards to software development, and I see more and more female developers. I agree with your perfect response, we women tend to think about our second (or first) duties as parents and we'd like a safe environment in order to continue to work (equally paid) with no risk of getting fired, because we are less efficient or sth else.

Where I'm coming from is worse than US, but in countries, say in Northern Europe, mothers usually have more benefits.
