Ten years ago, The New York Times profiled three female MIT graduates who were working in high technology. In 1993, women accounted for 15 percent of the information technology field. A decade later, the percentage has grown a measly 5 percent.
The Times now catches up with the three. One is teaching at a small women’s college in California, one works in business development for Google, and one works as a patent agent at a Silicon Valley law firm.
It’s an interesting read, following the careers of three smart, strong, and indepedent women playing in what is traditionally a boys’ game.
