One-minute Molly Rant: Keep talking about women in tech Video Transcript
Hi. I'm Molly Wood from CNET.com here with the Molly Rant in a Minute. Now, sometimes I talk to women in tech and they don't wanna talk about being a woman in tech. Sometimes, I don't want to either but then I remember that we have to keep talking about it. There aren't enough people in tech and that's a problem but in even bigger problem is the hostile attitude that keep women out of tech int he first place. Now, recently Dell held a summit in Copanhagen, Denmark. Michael Dell was the key note speaker but Dell Dabnish Team hired an emcee who is well-known for making sexist and racist remark. He kept the three going and this summit, he opened his comments by saying that there were no women in the crowd of 800 and he was happy about that. He said that men invented all the good things and women invented the rolling pin. He said IT was the last bash in where men could keep women out and that everyone in the audience should go home and tell their wife to shut up... Yeah. No, that really happened. Now, Dell Danish director did apologize if the emcee's comments had offended anyone but this is the person that he hired to follow Michael Dell on stage and these are the kind of attitudes that keep women out of the tech world completely or make them leave once they get there. We did reach out to Dell for comments and they haven't got back to us by present time. Keep watching the Molly Rant blog for updates and keep talking about this problem because it is not solved yet.
