"The questions I am often asked about my career tend to concentrate not on how
one learns to code but how a woman does."

Via Maya Posch, who added: "Back when I was supposedly male people around me
seemed to find it normal for me to be intelligent, technical and capable. After
changing gender roles, suddenly people seem amazed that I'm not an emotionally
insecure, non-technical person, only thinking about make-up and making little
babies."

Share and enjoy,
