There's a growing number of women in the tech industry these days. An engineering director at the company, Jocelyn Goldfein, told the Seattle Times that she’s “quite hopeful that Facebook can do something to turn the tide” and get more women studying computer science.
She goes on to say that the misogynist way Mark Zuckerberg was depicted in The Social Network was erroneous and says that Facebook does actually employ a lot of female engineers and developers.
