I work in the I.T. (technology) field, a dominantly male field. There are some good females in the field, but for every good female there will be about ten good males. This is just how it is, it's not a slam. Other fields like nursing are just the opposite. Anyway, so the IT field is dominantly male as far as skills and worker bees. HOWEVER, I'm seeing a pattern where there are more female managers than male managers. In my department the director used to be male, and everyone reported to him equally. Then a new female director came in. One of the first things she did was promote six people to subdirectors, five of those being female. The male one is who I report directly to and she makes his and my life a living hell everyday. We have talked about a discrimination case against her. Only one of those five females she promoted is qualified. The director is the least qualified of everyone. This is becoming a common pattern in many IT shops and I don't like it. Why are so many women taking over and ruining things for the rest of us?
