What are your thoughts?
I think the reason there aren't many women in crypto land is because they simply don't care. It seems like many women are usually more interested in fashion and gossip. Plus, if the woman is pretty she will have hordes of men trying to give her everything she wants in hopes of 'winning her.' So there is no incentive for her to create and build things that will make her rich, powerful or admired. Men are already doing that.
Sexist stereotyping probably isn't going to help...
Well then why aren't there many women in this space?
I recently read an article on psychology today talking about stereotypes. The author was basically saying that there is an element of truth to stereotypes and that that is why they even exist in the first place. Trust me I'd like to believe that stereotypes hold no truth but maybe that author was right.
i.e. Black men are deadbeat dads
Basically you are saying women have no drive to be great and they only care about looking pretty and gossiping... and all they need to do is find a man to woo her.
This isn't the 1960's anymore. I don't know how women are viewed where you are from, but this is not the way they are treated in modern culture. Here's a list of women CEO's of Fortune 500 companies.

Lets also not forget all the women in politics like:
There are currently women in crypto as well and more women will come when adoption becomes greater. Right now crypto has been mostly adopted by a libertarian mindset. Libertarians are 94% white, 68% are men and 62% are under 50. Look a lot like what crypto demographics might be?? When crypto can cater to a larger group of political ideals, the adoption will grow.
