Any fellow sisters out there doing engineering/computer sceince? Particulary post grads? PhDs to be more exact?
Ah yep. See I'm sure you must have felt like that YOU are the sole representative of all women - especially when you're sitting at a lecture on Fourier transformation and everyone else in the room are guys.
