I don't find this to be discriminatory, which is a point that is often lost on folk who want everything to be equally subdivided. *Warning* I tend NOT to be very politically correct. There are some occupations where men or women cluster in high percentages. Nursing is a prime example of women clustering. So is medicine in general. It isn't just that women have been guided into nursing, although some of that is certainly there. Programming (and most things computer/network related) tends to have a high concentration of males. While the art of programming itself is highly creative, the ability to handle things spatially is equally important. Good math skills are required, and those don't get shared out equally among the sexes. Just for grins, however, look at the number of DBAs that are female. There are never going to be equal percentages of women and men in any field that requires skills that are sex linked. Never. Life's not fair, but I prefer it to the alternatives. -- It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.
