    Who Needs a Y Chromosome? New Documentary Encourages Girls to Get Into Tech

    A new short documentary fighting back against the decline in the number of young women considering studying computer science premieres tonight at Stanford. 

    By Ayna Agarwal &  Ellora Israni (Co-Directors, she++ Women in Technology Conference)

    Between 2000 and 2009, there was a 79% drop in the number of first-year undergraduate women considering computer science, even as the likes of Facebook, Twitter and Angry Birds were making technology ‘cool’ again.

    This Isn’t a Girl Thing

    Marissa Mayer’s decision to bring all Yahoo! employees back to the office has nothing to do with gender — it’s all about business and reinvigorating a stumbling behemoth. 

    By Shaherose Charania (Co-Founder & CEO, Women 2.0)

    I had a chat with my friends at Bloomberg last week. They were perplexed that the media was still talking about the strong move by Marissa and wanted my honest and frank opinion.

    You can post your opportunity for 30 days for $10 until October 31.

    By Shaherose Charania (Co-Founder & CEO, Women 2.0)

    Great news! We’ve been asked, for what seems like years, “Does Women 2.0 have a job board?” And we did, then we didn’t, then we did and then we didn’t.
