'Any female piclist members?'

Something has been bothering me for a long time now... I keep looking
at the names of people posting to this list to see if there are any
female members on this list, but so far I've not seen a single one.
Its just interesting that women don't seem to be interested in these
things, even though 10-20% of electronic engineers are female. That
means that we should have at least 50-100 piclist members.  What's
wrong here?  Has anybody got any theories about this pheonomena?

And if there are any female Piclist member reading this, please know
that I am VERY impressed. And please tell us that you are here!  :)

I am a new PICLIST member and I'm reporting in as female :-).   I'm
not sure if you should be VERY impressed or not - but thank you for
making me feel welcome.

I am quite new to PICs - but I'm working very hard.  I am a lecturer
at Birmingham University, U.K.  I am running a new (short) course on
the PIC (replacing the Z80) to our 2nd yr undergradutes later this
term.  We'll be using the PIC16C84 in the lab.  I have had much
support from David Tait at Manchester, Bob Barnes in Australia and
others from the PIC 'community.'

I'd be very interested to hear from anyone who knows of another
university course covering the PIC.  There will be only two
supervised labs - so we're keeping the projects very simple.  But the
great thing about the PIC is the low cost of development - so that
students can buy their experimental boards for just a few U.K pounds.
If you've heard of anything similar please let me know.

And, finally, I'd love to hear from other females too.

Kind regards
Sandra

    I don't have any statistics to back it up, but I think in the US, the
    ratio is closer to 5% women engineers.  Almost every engineer I know
    is male.  It's easy to get caught in the trap that engineers are all
    men, even though that obviously isn't true.

Werner:

Actually, there are a lot of women working in technical capacities at
Microchip.

MPSIM was written by a woman named Feranak Nelson and MPASM,
although originally written by Walter Banks at Bytecraft, was later
supported by Christine DeLacrosse (I THINK I have her last name
correct) and has since been almost completely rewritten by Kim
Cooper, who's now responsible for it.  Kim's also done a lot of work
on the MPLAB-C compiler, and she's written a bunch of software for
Microchip's other development tools as well.

Kim's on the list; the others were here at one point but may have
unsubscribed.

I had the same question in my mind some month ago, but I didn't make
it to the list.

Not true here in Argentina, in my University the number is between 2
and 4%. Very different to the Informatics carreer.

Mine theory is related to the machist primary education system.

Shure must be ... or I'm wrong?

I have to agree somewhat with Frank: this is the sort of thing that makes
me wonder about those whose argument against a newsgroup is that the S/N
here is so wonderful.  But then I'm always a little bemused by folks who
ask about gender in a sexless electronic forum like this; likewise age,
appearance, etc.

I suppose one reason for asking about female members is to ensure we are
tactful should we enter into any discussion about PICs used for - err
personal 'hand-held' items  -  some of which are also pleasurable to work
on - ie design :}
