This week, we celebrated the Ada Lovelace Day, which spurred many discussions about women in content management hitting their pretty (and smart!) heads against glass ceilings. Some argued that women and men are created equal, and we all just dreamt up such silly things as male dominance and lack of gender neutrality or equal opportunity in our industry.

Theresa Regli of the Real Story Group (formerly CMS Watch), for example, (who “never once felt being a woman in a male-dominated industry was a disadvantage”) said:

Perhaps what I appreciate the most about being a woman in tech is that generally, guys think girls who get tech are sexy. And that, well, sells. Milk it, girls: you've earned it.

Thus urging to take advantage of the sexiest part of human body -- the brain.

Regli’s “girl power” pitch came in response to the list of women in content management comprised by Cheryl McKinnon, CMO of Nuxeo (news, site), in which McKinnon acknowledged many of the accomplished women in the field.

Humbled and honored, I found myself on that list as well under the "influencers" category.

Despite the fact that there are quite a few of us in the #ecmcoven, women are still somewhat of a rarity in content management, but that deserves a separate story.

For now, let’s look at what else has been happening this week in the world of Web CMS and Enterprise CMS.
