Brilliant Blogs Created by Women

I bet you didn't know that only 30% of Google's workforce is female. It would be easy to blame Google for this lopsided number, but pickings are slim when it comes to women with experience in the field. Out of the 57% of Bachelor's degrees earned by women, only 12% are in computer science. Another part of the problem is how much more desired men are to women in the eyes of investors (investors apparently love attractive men).

I bet you didn’t know that only 30% of Google’s workforce is female. It would be easy to blame Google for this lopsided number, but pickings are slim when it comes to women with experience in the field. Out of the 57% of Bachelor’s degrees earned by women, only 12% are in computer science. Another part of the problem is how much more desired men are to women in the eyes of investors (investors apparently love attractive men). A good-looking guy is 60% more likely to get the pot of gold he needs for his dreams than a woman presenting the same pitch. It’s overwhelming, as though women are already positioned 60 feet behind the starting line of their male opponents.

Regardless of the inefficient structure of the STEM workforce, females use technology 12% more than males do. It’s one statistic that doesn’t surprise me. Pink Curlers and Post Scripts is always swimming around in the sea of social media, and I feel no shortage of women in the blogging or social media communities. I don’t know if or how blogging fits into the stats of women in technology, but as a female blogger myself, I’m proud to say it’s not as hard as you think to come across a talented female blogger or two.
