Male dominated
As someone who often writes and researches big data topics, I'm often struck by the fact that you can come across platforms in which you'd find only men or only one woman among 5 or more men.  I'm sure women are making advances, but there is still a long way to go.

Re: Male dominated
@jastroff It's true for other industries, as well. A couple of years ago, I covered a Bitcoin conference. I'd say it was about 70% male for the people in attendance and about 80% for the speakers.

Re: Male dominated
She makes a good point in saying that 'male-dominated' carries a power-based connotation. I never put much thought into saying tech was a male-dominated industry, but that could intimidate young women thinking about entering the field.
