Adria Richards was at a conference recently, giving a talk, and some guys were being super sexist. So she took a picture of them and told her thousands of followers on Twitter what they said.
In response, her boss fired *her*.
A Woman Walks Into A Tech Conference
A woman in the tech community identified people violating the stated Code of Conduct of the group. She was summarily run out of the community. Oh, wait, that wasn't just this week, that was six years ago.
A woman in the tech community takes her blog offline and stops speaking publicly after receiving death threats for a month. That was also six years ago.
A man attending a festival for the tech community harassed and attempted sexual assault on multiple women in attendance. That was three years ago.
A man attending a high-profile invite-only tech event groped and harassed multiple women in attendance. That was also three years ago.
A very high-profile man in the tech community is arrested for multiple counts of sexual assault. The tech community assumes loudly and repeatedly that the women reporting the assaults are lying. Again, this was three years ago.
A woman representing her employer at a large tech event was physically assaulted by a man attending the event. That was two years ago.
A sponsored hackathon lists "friendly (female) event staff" delivering beer to participants as a "great perk" of participating. That was last year.
A prominent man in the tech community was hired by a large computer manufacturer to be its master of ceremonies at a customer summit, where he said things like, "Men have invented everything worthwhile. All we can thank women for is the rolling pin." That was also last year.
A woman who produces online feminist educational content ran a Kickstarter campaign to examine tropes about women in video games. In response, avid gamers sent her rape and death threats, vandalized her Wikipedia page, and created a game that allowed the player to "beat up" the woman's image. Again, this was only last year.
