Link: Speaking up. | Sarah Parmenter

It’s no great secret that girls are a minority in this industry, you only have to look at the queues for the toilets at any conference, however, it’s forgotten that it’s not about female speakers, it’s about finding female speakers who have enough of a thick skin to want to stand up infront of an audience of twitter-trigger-happy males and public speak.

    Like I said on my G+ post, even in our community it exists. It’s tiny, not a huge issue, but it is *still there*.

    And seriously – how I look has no bearing on what I know. Just like how Ron looks has no bearing on his knowledge.
