Obsessed with Mathematics and numbers
Currently working on getting my first Mathematics textbook published. My undergraduate degree included Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics (‘triple degree’ because I’m a self-proclaimed over-achiever) though I emphasized math more. I earned an MSc in math with a thesis in Category Theory and a PhD with a thesis combining Graph Theory with some aspects of Probability Theory, Algebra and Topology.

I believe that most women have no interest in tech industry compared to men and it will really take time to have more women on board.
What are your thoughts about this?

We need men working in daycares and as servers, nurses, secretaries, cosmetologists, receptionists, dancers, models, department store sales reps, stay at home dads, teachers, etc etc... or we could accept the fact that we all have equal opportunities and we have the ability to choose our own paths and limitations.

It's not true. We should stop to imagine walls and just do our best smiling face with smiling eyes
Teach girls to LOVE MATH. They have to stop worrying about their spending power first.
I was never influenced from a young age that I could go into tech. I would’ve loved it, now I have to play catch-up.
Tech field requires logic thinking, Math sophistication, patience and persistence. A lot of people don't have these qualities, not just women. Also, why do we need"more people" to do or be something they are not? If all women are technician, will the world be a better place? I don't know.

 Haven't you a mind of your own?

Don't you grasp context? Under what circumstances is a child or young high school aged kid in charge of their own development?

"Under what circumstances is a child or young high school aged kid in charge of their own development?"
Doesn't this apply to males as well as females? The fact that children aren't in control of their own destinies applies to both genders not just one. So the idea that you have to be encouraged to be this or that doesn't apply. I was always told I wasn't smart enough to work with my brain and would have to learn manual labor. If you think discouragement is saved only for young women you're wrong. We all have the right and ability to choose who we want to be. Sure there are obstacles, and challenges, but isn't that what life is?
We have to accept the fact that NOT ALL TECHNICAL THINGS will be easy for women.
Computer research applications will have now a huge progress thanks to the development of AI which depends on deep learning algorithms.
Well, stop funding 96% of projects for men and give women far greater access to funding. women get miniscule access to funding, and when they do the amounts are only a fraction of what men receive for similar projects.
