Gender on the agenda

There's been a bit of a storm in a teacup ( or rather D-cup ) in the Ruby world after a presentation at a Ruby conference left one of the female attendees not very amused

This created a further blogstorm, at least one resignation and an interesting blog about influences and associations

Struck a chord with me because

1) I have a daughter working in IT

2) Over on the Software Testing Club some of the female members have been having comments left on their profile pages. Nothing lewd or suggestive but unwanted attention all the same so actions have been taken to stop this behaviour
