Enjoyable, but a bit one sided
3 March 2019 | by es-36951-67166See all my reviews

This film opened my eyes to an industry that I have never really put much thought on. I was really impressed at the honesty in the documentary. The fact the women, who are still in the industry, tell of the same treatment toward women in a matter of fact demonstrates the need for change. The facts and examples of women not getting the credit they deserved for the technological advancements of the past were something that made me look at women in coding differently. There is definitely a new-found respect. That being said, i am not a fan of one sided arguments. And even though they had a couple of male perspectives, This film opened my eyes to an industry that I have never really put much thought on. I was really impressed at the honesty in the documentary.

I am not a fan of one-sided arguments, but the facts and examples of women not getting the credit they deserved for the technological advancements of the past were something that made me look at women in coding differently. There is definitely a new-found respect. Although there were a couple of good male perspectives, I do wish more was said of what has been done. Every industry is in need of more diversity, be it women in male dominated fields or vice-versa, or a diversity in race, culture, religion, ect. We all know that, but I do think the film focused on the problem and not enough on the efforts that has been done for make the coding industry diverse and equal. Other than that, I really enjoyed the film.
