Agreed. I hear more "but it's hard" or "I don't know how you do it!" from women when they talk about computers (I am a programmer). In my experience the majority of the women in our computer science program in college wanted to A. work in middle management B. do something technology-related, but not programming or C. teach. I admit that I would love to teach if it paid better.

My mother in law got a degree in mathamatics, and was a software engineer, she just got a promotion into management (she is Korean by the way). My little sister works in computer networking and security, and has become the go-to woman in her department (she hasn't even worked there a year) She doesn't have a degree, but has military experience(not korean). And my cousin-in-law also works in IT (not korean). I know lots of women who have careers in computers. I am a college student and have meet lots of women interested in hard science. I had a chemist in my economics class. And half my integral calculus class were women. (I got an A!!! Who says dyslexics can't do math!) And my husband's math teacher is a woman is working on getting her PHD in mathmatics.
