i think the australian experience is changing - fast. more women than
ever are succeeding at maths and science (and the men are decreasing in
ability and interest) so it's only a matter of time until women dominate
many "male" professions, including IT.

but then i don't care who "dominates", only that industry and
professional bodies like this represent the interests of the members and
the community in which they serve. this means making sure everyone feels
welcome to participate and contribute.
