Recently I read the survival tips from female software engineer Patricia Ass (https://patricia.no/2018/09/06/survival_tips_for_women_in_tech.html). Her advice is way more radical and defensive then mine (https://firstname.lastname@example.org/survival-guide-for-women-in-it-c7851c541138) were!
I do agree with the majority of her tips. It saddens me that women in IT have to follow them to be recognized and heard. At the beginning of my career I knew I would have to put extra effort and time in my work to achieve something, but I had not expected that I will have to do this all the time.
