@mcmanustom @onebrightlight @psychicteeth @karlpet_s @misterpikul @SensiHannah @shaunspalding Women's pull requests are accepted more, unless their gender is identifiable. The bias is clear. https://t.co/HewwrrmVGT

@woodss Here's a scholarly paper showing that when people know a pull request is from a woman the chances that it's approved go down by 12% https://t.co/tYnpe2Y2W9 She's talking about a real prejudice that she faces, not attacking you personally. So maybe listen with empathy?

@H00b3n je me suis un peu perdu sur le sujet dans la nuit, ça remonte à loin effectivement. (quoi que 2 ans, en IT c'est énorme dans la vrai vie pas trop). au final je pense pas pouvoir donner plus d'info que: https://t.co/QHAfR5r1OK
"TeCh Is A MeRiToCrAcY" https://t.co/dZU0aOuJ6e meanwhile: https://t.co/Ekk5H4mpcc "[4 those] who are outsiders to a project and their gender is identifiable, men’s acceptance rates are higher...women on GitHub may be more competent overall, bias against them exists nonetheless."
Fascinating article describing Open Source project contributions https://t.co/EnHyUgQ95Q

@Aidan_Power_ @histoftech @facebook @katemiltner We've data on this! https://t.co/CSLXrPs7dR Key takeaways: - female coders have higher acceptance rates in general - when coders ID their gender in their profile, acceptance rates go down (for both genders, significantly worse for women)

@RalphMus @economeager @Claudia_Sahm There's shed loads. Some of it summarised in this: https://t.co/Yv2U2yjiaO Then there's this: https://t.co/1TPezLaa0z and a bunch of stuff in this: https://t.co/vM9u005HTa
@coloniis 1. This is the main one I’ve seen: https://t.co/4AYtGrJOx4 2. I suspect it does, but I’ve got no proof other than anecdotes from friends. It’s not something I’ve tried - I am who I am and I refuse to be bullied into hiding my gender.
