Tech world has always been a slippery slope when it come to women. Previously endorsed stereotypes have not gone away especially when it comes to the fintech world. Women are still struggling to find a position and a voice. You still receive a mix of confusion and amusement when you tell people that you are in the tech market.
However, Satoshi gave us a gift called blockchain. It was supposed to change the world for the better. Be a field for all genders. The statistics got us really worried when we saw what truly been happening, however is there anyone out there working for this cause? Is there anyone trying to fight the battle for us?? Where is our girl support system??
Don’t be dismayed as there organizations working on it.
