This has been a big year for women in tech and telecom. We've had lawsuits for gender discrimination filed (and won), tell-all books about unfair treatment at tech hubs published and an incoming president who has behaved questionably towards women elected. Women have fought long and hard for equal pay and equal treatment, and while the struggle is still real, we have made progress with every step.
Then again, not everything is progress. In other words, we've had some setbacks. From inappropriate office behavior to insulting and sexist ads, we've seen it all. And now we've lovingly documented every stumble, blunder and flub in the following slideshow so that in a few years we can look back and say, "Remember when women were paid less than men? Remember when we weren't taken seriously? We sure showed them!"
