For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Yes it's true, and the smaller the ratio of women to men in the environment,
the more likely it is to wreak havoc.
I have to disagree, I find it differs from one environment to the next, no matter what the ratio men/women. I actually work in a "almost only" men environment and have rarely had as much support and respect. I think it comes mainly from the company's culture where deadlines are more flexible or realistic and cooperation is expected and encouraged between teams.
Therefore, all I have to do is be myself, ask for what I need and be there when others need something. Of course, it is always appreciated if you need help tomorrow or at the end of the day instead of right now. Noboby likes to be disturbed when they are focussed on their work.
