Maybe, or maybe she will decide that she doesn't want to work in tech because its not very fulfilling to her and she doesn't want to work 60+hrs a week for a 35 year old boy, in a company where sexual harassment is normal and accepted, where her coworkers think that the only reason she has this job is because the company has a diversity quota. Maybe, just maybe she wants to have a kid and a life outside of work. Money is a good reason to choose tech, but there is a whole lot of other reasons to stay away.

I have a sneaking suspicion I could ctrl+G tech and replace it with most markets, sadly. Though, empowerment (the article at hand) is a first step to the decisions that may lead down those paths. Empowerment doesn't necessitate those realities afflict her.
