Potential for the job
A growing number of industries have been employing a greater percentage of female workers in recent years. This justifies the fact that there is always a fair share of potential female incumbents regardless of the jobscope.

Re: Wonderful news
i wrote IN CERTAIN AREAS - not all areas.  Masters of cryptography, for example, bend to a Japanese mindset.  They are masters at that.  So I believe that the intuitive thought process of women exceeds men in not all, but some, areas of cryptosecurity.  Hey - they can damn well spot when we're LYING!!!!!

Re: Wonderful news
Good news.

I can't say "women think BETTER than men" if no one think like other (men / woman) how can we say that.

But I agree it's a plus for the security community.

Wonderful news
Not only is this statistically great news for women but, moreover, a plus for the security community.  Without being sexist, I believe women think BETTER than men do on these complex issues and can analyze them FAR better than the other side of the fence.  Same way in a sense that some have a natural abilit to look at cryptography and such and others just don't.  It is dangerous to label one group generally GOOD and another BAD but in this case I applaud the achievement and feel FAR better for it.  My 2 cents.
