    Re: Why the ...girl thing?

    I have found over the years that I probably get on better with women than men in the workplace.

    I think it is a shame that more women are not involved in the industry - the few women who I have met who have been working in IT have been highly professional people.

    It annoys me that IT is perceived as a male profession - there is no reason why it should be!

    Re: Why the ...girl thing?

    I always though there was a high ratio of female IT staff to male. When I left my old school a lady got my IT Technician job and at my current school the previous IT tech was a lady. That and my IT co-coordinator is female.

    The last KS3 Onscreen ICT workshop was interesting not so much what they where talking about but who turned up. Out of all the IT staff I believe we started with only 1 other male in the room, excluding the talkers.

    I don’t know how others feel but I find in special needs schools the gender ratio leans heavily to female even in the more traditional male only jobs.

    One think I learnt when working around so many females. Never, ever under and circumstance enter the staffroom on makeup day when a bunch of new products arrive.

    Blonde is not a hair colour ... blonde is a state of mind.

    The school where you work must have a very open minded ethos
