As a result of having very few women in tech, they are not influencing product development or business direction.

Needless to say that, given women's growing buying power in this society, this is not just bad for them, but it is also penalizing for business.

In my post I interviewed Kathy Downing, Managing Director at the prominent group of women Angel investors called Golden Seeds, which is trying to reverse this trend by mentoring and funding women founders.
