Deal With It

Came across this gem, I can bring home the bacon; why are you so interested in the pan?, while reading one of my daily doses, Mighty Girl and, while, yes, go read the linked article, What My Uterus Can Teach You About Being a Tech Leader, this, in particular, resonated:

I’d also add, if you’re balancing genders in a speaker lineup, avoid having more than one woman at your conference speak to the issue of harassment (unless that’s the topic of your gathering of course). That interests me to a point, but taken too far, especially at tech conferences, it can be exhausting and disheartening. It puts women in the spotlight not for their accomplishments, but as the object of threats from a mostly male chorus.
