Who's the One Left Saying Sorry? Gender/tech/librarianship – Ruth Kitchin Tillman
This is one I expect to need permanently bookmarked, unfortunately.

Overpromising is a pattern I’ve come to recognize in library technology and, indeed, in other areas. In encountering this article, I was struck by another question…

How many women1 in libtech (and libraries generally) underestimate their own abilities because their work consists of following up on one of these overpromises and having to apologize over and over for not being able to deliver?

How does a woman feel about her skills, capacity, self, and accomplishments, if her work consists of cashing or voiding checks someone else wrote?2
