From a logical point of view … — Crooked Timber
In the USA, women’s share of bachelor’s degrees granted in computer science more than doubled from 1970 to 1980, peaked at 37% in 1984/1985, and then fell back into the high teens by 2010.

The change is lightning-quick compared to human generations. This is like looking at a graph of American polio cases and concluding that selection pressure abruptly produced polio-proof offspring starting in the mid-1950s. It’s mutation and selection as explained by X-Men comics.

Of course this was Silicon Valley where everything was just invented, so something else missed is how moth-eaten this particular topic is. Back in the Early Paleolithic (that is, say the 60’s and 70’s) the fraction of women in computer science was high; then to quote from an article in 2000, “The proportions of Computer Science (CS) graduates who are women has been declining in the last fifteen years. ” Historically, most computers (the human kind) were female, and this carried over into the early computer era. Then it became prestigious and the men showed up.

And the article is “Underrepresentation of Girls and Women in Computer Science: Classification of 1990s Research”, with citations back into the 1980’s to papers about possible causes. The writer may have been a great programmer, but he sure didn’t do his homework.
