No, this isn’t outside the loos at some weird bizarro-world music festival.

Rena Pacheco-Theard tweeted the picture from a technology event called TechCrunch Disrupt, hinting to the gender divide within the tech industry.

CNET reported last year that women make up just 30 per cent of major tech companies and Deloitte Global estimates that women will hold fewer than a quarter of IT jobs in developed countries by the end of 2016.

It’s not the first time toilet queues have been used to illustrate the male-dominated IT industry, similar pictures have been posted from other tech conventions.



Gender imbalance is so commonplace, that when there is a decent line for the ladies’ at a tech event, it’s met with amazement.
