True, but this is a recent change, and there are still not as many women as men in that field.

Like accounting has been "humanized"?

The great driver for getting women into IT is the gradual redefinition of gender roles in society. Women are getting into "male" jobs such as construction, emergency services and the professions, while more men are getting into "female" jobs such as primary school teaching and nursing.

It's just a matter of time and I see no need to either hurry it, or hold it back.
