It seems like we’ll see fewer and fewer of these stories in the future. One day, in fact, it will seem like a novelty that news outlets even bothered to write specifically about “powerful women” as a story in themselves.

The last “boy’s club” in tech appears to be in the tecnnical fields themselves, but even that is changing.
