Unlike women, no matter how many battles us men enter, going against waves of opponents, our voice will never have the power to stop an army whole in it’s tracks. In my opinion women are the key to mainstream acceptance and overall to changing this world, that is why it should be of utmost importance to impact young women to enter technology and blockchain.
Don’t think that guys who are into IT and computer science are portraying a ‘gender norm’. Quite the contrary: my blokey mates laugh at me cos I don’t know anything about motors or cars. Us geeks are already on the fringes of society, regardless of gender. We have to stick together and help each other. That way, we’ll have the ultimate Revenge of the Nerds.
Greetings, I am new to the space and appreciate the fact that there are women here who contribute and are active and learning (as we all are.)
One thing I have noticed is that it doesn’t seem to matter to a true crypto spirit -if You will- not a maximalist thing - simply people are too engaged to care whether they are talking to a male or female. Happy with that discovery.
Encouraging all to participate in what manner best suits them,
And, yes, I’m sure I want to continue this ‘old’ conversation…lol.
Hi there Wan. I’m a girl in blockchain and a girl in Tech too. I think it’s really social conditioning. My mum (I’ve been raised by a single mother) never raised eyebrows with any of my career aspiration when I was younger. I played a lot of video games too with my mum. So it was almost normal that when I said I wanted to make games nothing was problematic.
I think it’s all about social conditioning, like pink is for girls and blue is for boys. One of the thing I believe we ought to do. what we should really all do is to find it normal to have girl in tech. I think there is too much emphasis that there isn’t a lot of girls in this field.
I have been a woman in IT for over 20 years, and have often been the only woman on the development team. I think this is changing in recent years with initiatives like Girls Who Code. My younger female cousin just graduated in Computer Science and taught at Girls Who Code for her internship. I think it would be good to introduce blockchain into the Girls Who Code curriculum.
