I agree, the first programmer was a woman! Marie Curie and Ir??ne Joliot-Curie, are two other well known examples of great female scientists.
But those are just examples, they just show that some women can be as good scientists as men, there could still exist a natural difference which could explain the observed bias.

My wife is a physicist, my daughter is a physicist...
Take extremely good looking Harvard Professor of Theoretical Physics Lisa Randall, ...only few men are better
Just enter "Lisa Randall in Google images"...you will be surprised.

But she was treated by a certain member of this forum rather untactful and even her picture was paraded around, and I am pretty sure the guiltily party knows who they are. Not something most women care to have done on the open internet, even if her picture was from another site. She was treated quiet badly all in all and I am not at all surprised that more women have put the foot forward around here. Things like what happened to her have a way of spreading around in the female community at large and they stay away from sites that this kind of thing happens on.

Men on the other hand (again, generally spoken) are more easily carried away by (sometimes) seemingly futile endeavours and tend to forget other aspects of their lives more easily. (At least, that's why I need women as a counter force in my life.)

Just a very small observation, but our forum here, with its complete lack of adornments, looks kind of nerdy.
Just google the words "women+forum", and you will instantly see what i mean. It may be that our forums simply signals "Here There Be Geeks: stay away"...
