I haven't write for a while now over here because I started a new job that demands quite a lot of time and effort, and I've thinking about writing over here a lot lately. When I received the mail about the #shecoded I thought "this is the time!".
I wouldn't stop, I couldn't. I made tech a very personal close thing in my life and there's no turn back on this. My job doesn't implies programming a lot (it does implies breaking a lot) but I enjoy creating and doing some experiments both for my job's shake and for my personal entertainment.
There aren't many women in the security industry. I'd love to think someday any girl who wants to work in security will be able to do so, not driven by any condescendent advise but to develop their already known passion, and it would be amazing to see the dudes around seeing this as damn normal and nothing to point at or admirate more than you would admire any other person for doing their job, and to be told if not, naturally, in a healthy job environment.
This is a very difficult goal to reach as a community, as there's quite a lot of social and cultural walls that needs to break and fall before we can even start thinking about solving the problem in tech and security indsutry. The security community is quite open, healthy and reflexive, so it's a perfect environment to develop a change. We need both, a healthy envorinment and culturally uncensored girls.
There's a long path to get there, hard work ahead. But nevertheless we'll code.
