Silicon Valley’s Gender Problem, Explained in 2 Photos


Last year, CNET’s Dan Ackerman tweeted a photo of the restroom lines at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.

 

The message: Silicon Valley is mostly men.

Today was the WWDC 2014 keynote and Ackerman revisited the scene.

Behold: Some ladies! Not many though. In fact, basically none. Silicon Valley’s very real woman problem remains.

We will not be happy until these lines are equal in length.
