Women and Technology

There is absolutely no reason for any part of society to be excluded from the technological revolution that is upon us.  Hence The Bloated Chat Hole was launched in 2005 to put such wrongs to right.  Focusing on technology (with a less major interest in engineering), our mission is help those who have thus far been discouraged, to enter this exciting industry.

Women especially seem to have been left out.  This is an age-old problem. For many years already they have never been pushed in Math, that being seen as a “boy” subject.  It is not true. When giving the opportunity, girls have thrived just as much in the subject, if not more as their male counterparts.

We believe the same is true of technology. And thus we are seeking – and finding – new ways every day to encourage women to take roles in fields that are expected of men, but not women.  One way we do this is by teaching these subjects, by putting them into our schools and by making excellent female role models accessible to all.

It’s all about perception and attitude.  And by putting women in the right places at the right time, The Bloated Cat Hole can change this around. This is the case not just for women, but for all sectors of society that have thus far missed out.
