To the editor — So most IT people did not realize they needed to upgrade to Windows 10 before Jan. 14, 2020. I am a woman and I knew this. I also realized that some of the companies in Yakima are way behind the times.

Many IT departments are Mr. Masculine-related. I know this because when I tried to get a job in a male dominated field, I was sometimes humiliated or treated as brain dead, even at Planned Parenthood. This is really a shame when women are just as smart as men.

I graduated with an associate degree in information technology at YVCC with 15 men and five women. Some tests, I scored higher than the men, and I could hear some of my classmates wondering who got the highest score. Duh.
