Unfortunately, sexism is allegedly alive and well in Silicon Valley, which is far from a conservative or moderate political atmosphere. CNN did a piece on how sexism is prevalent in the start-up industry in northern California, but neglected to mention that the area is politically liberal and progressive.
More often than not, left-leaning activists claim that their side of the political aisle promotes diversity among ethnicities, races and gender.
Yet, CNN did not ask the question, why is liberal Silicon Valley too male-dominant, which goes against liberalism’s long-held tenet of diversity? Why are liberal males allegedly sexist in the start-up industry?
