I can't believe this idea is still being entertained in 2017. Complete nonsense. For my part, I studied engineering and have worked in industrial settings for more than 20 years. While there weren't may women in engineering when I studies, and not many in industry when I started, I see more nowadays. From what I've seen, they're are every bit as good or bad as guys. Not really much difference when it comes to doing the job. The problems only seem to start with others who can't seem to handle the concept.
