      Thanks for the links. :) I was interested to see that “federal prosecutor for the Western District of Virginia is conducting the probe for the U.S. Justice Department”–satisfying in a way, since that’s my old stomping ground. :)

      Good to see more perspectives from women in CS/IT. Reports from people I know vary a lot, as does the amount of blatant sexism they’re running into on the ground; part of that is perception, I’d imagine. I’m still pretty irked at the pay gap–if anything, more blatant because employers have a hard time doing the old job title switcheroo, AFAICT.
