Good post on women in security

There is an interesting commentary on women in security on www.oneeyedcrow.net

“Okay, rant time. In quick succession, the subject of women in the security field has come up several times this week. Many of the male security geeks I know have no idea why there aren’t more women in the field. Well, in a nutshell, this post and others like it are why. Pathetic script kiddie bullshit like this drives women out of the field.”

Sometimes the boys just don’t get it!
