Oracle News Headlines


Fewer Women in Computer Jobs

November 9, 2004

Okay, I must admit that this article kind of hit home when I first read it.  First, being a computer professional and secondly, being a woman.

An article published on indicated that a recent study done by Commission on Professionals in Science and Technology found a decline in the share of computer science jobs held by women in a recent 20-year period.

In 1983, women held 30.5 percent of the jobs in the category of computer systems analysts and scientists, programmers and postsecondary computer science teachers, according to the commission. That figure declined to 27.2 percent in 2002.

Women increased their representation in all the natural science professions, especially medical science, where they accounted for more than half of all employment in 2002, according to the report.

Does this mean I should have pursued that nursing degree that I started out with 20 years ago?  I don't think so.  I will be a die-hard "female computer geek" until the end of it's time
(or mine :-).
