Really glad that Google is doing this. Also, the data they present is really interesting, and now that i think about it, Google must have so much data that provides really good insight into the world of sexism and discrimination.

I just found out about this and found it too funny not too share. Maybe something like this, that calls out conferences and panels for having an all male line up, is just what we need to stand up against that. Of course, these people will always say that it's because women were not qualified or didn't want to participate...

A really interested read on how we shape robots based on our own prejudices, and how many men have been unable to imagine a female robot that didn't exist just to serve men sexually.

Finally! It's amazing what this campaign has accomplished. I want to congratulate everyone who participated in this, this is so awesome, if only just to show what a feminist group can do when it has a clear objective.

Although I'm not a fan of gaming news sites and gaming culture, I think this is a nice progress that arose from all the harassment that has been going against women in the past few weeks (and the past decades for that matter).

It is of course not the best thing that they can do, considering most of these developers have lot of problematic thematics in their games, but I think it's a good first step to show to the world (and especially the gaming community which is of course already angry about this) that harassment should not be ignored or tolerated.

This is why we need more parental leave, and more laws protecting discrimination to women in hiring practices. It's incredible that such a great amount of people still have this retrograde ideology.

What I hate the most about this excuse, is that these managers never seem to care about the "problems" that are predominant in men that can also affect their work. Like physical aggressiveness or alcoholism, just to mention a few. It's just something they use to discriminate women, because they want to have a "rational" excuse for their shitty behaviour.

"When I got my post at Facebook it was all about how I was a mother-of-four who had 'won' the position, alongside pictures of my wedding," she said, noting that the male executive hired at the same time came under no such scrutiny. Reports also said she insisted on working part-time, when in fact she was working a typical five-day week.

I'm sure you've all seen this, but this is a wonderful initiative by Google.

I think this is a nice first step from Google. Not a lot of companies do this, and I think more should. They should be really open about what they are doing to improve their diversity.

I'm a bit worried either way that this could have a negative effect as well. For example, some people may feel discouraged to apply to work at Google because of this numbers.
