Tech Company: What is wrong with them? So sensitive and politically correct. We certainly don’t want women like that working here. Let’s find the women who don’t feel like that and hire them.
Women Who Want to Fit In: Oh yeah, hire me. I don’t feel like that. I’m totally cool. I’ll also give talks on how women just need to work on themselves so they can work in tech. It’s all about women’s lack of confidence, and not knowing how to dress, act, talk or feel.
