    What a bunch of loonies. As a software developer I have worked with women almost constantly over the past 10+ years and never have I heard one complaint about the working environment. Of course, with girls being so few in a team, we don't talk very often about cooking and make-up, but that's not harassing.
    Also, I have never heard about "pornography in slides". Never ever.

          Yeah... I saw the porno in slides thing and I'm left going... "um... what? [Citation Needed]". It's possible that it happened once somewhere, but I seriously doubt that it ever did, and it was certainly not something that would normally happen.

            The entire premise of this organization, that women must be pushed, prodded, and cooerced into working with computers, is degrading to women.

                Yes, that is a great way for them to end their career.

                With that sort of attitude, I can't imagine why women wouldn't be jumping at the opportunity to be on your team.

                  -roll eyes- No, you're right, women are too silly and foolish to be attracted to IT on their own, they can't possibly make that kind of decision without some pink flowery marketing hype.

                    Wth does that mean? There should be a minimal level of cooking and make-up talk in every team so that women don't feel like outsiders?
                    FYI, I enjoy working with women and in a few cases we still keep in touch long after the team is no more.
