The selection of Donald Trump’s daughter and top adviser exposes the vast electronics expo to charges that when, finally, it invites a female keynote speaker, it invites one with limited experience in technology.
“This is a terrible choice on so many levels but also – what an insult to the YEARS AND YEARS of protesting how few women were invited to keynote & being told it was a pipeline problem while similarly-situated men were elevated,” tech commentator Rachel Sklar tweeted. “There are so many great, qualified women. Shame.”
I think we can guess which gig Rachel Sklar has her eye upon.
But here’s the fun thing. IOt used to be that there weren’t enough people with ovaries doing this sort of thing. Now there is. So, the protest changes to it should be people who actually know something. But that’s what the system used to be, isn’t it? Peeps who knew something was exactly why the ovaries weren’t up there on stage?
