The theory of software that is less supportive in women is in this paper. We don't need to discuss it, as I was confusing the person I was replying to as the author of that paper, erroneously.
As for women being harassed at trade shows, it's horrible. It's not restricted to our field, though. Consider this, perhaps the worst example known.
On the internet? Yes, I'm sure it happens there too.
I am just having trouble with the idea that this is almost 100% reliable in keeping out women. No other cause at all, eh?
