In my previous job I said to the recruiters (more than once) to post a job opening specifically for a female programmer. Unfortunately, even after saying they would consider, I don't think they ever actually did it.


please if you are a male dev looking for a job, care about what teams look like. ask how many women devs there are. ask how many women are on the leadership team. normalize this. care about this.


@vnen Could aeking for a female worker be illegal in some jurisdictions due gender discrimination laws?

@alket someone told me it's illegal in the US (though I don't think this stops recruiters from applying gender bias in the selection process anyway).
