i think women can work in technology because all depends on mind and interest.History also shows many instances when women were very good and talanted scientists for example mathematicians. So it does not depends on sex.Simple it is old habit to suppose that women can be only good mothers, wifes and they can do easy work. It is not true. It is only stereotype. But modern world do not like it and try to struggle with this wrong idea. Now it is time of equality between female and male. So it means that woman can work in technology like man and it will not miracle. It is usual situation for modern life and all people who disagree with it must get used to this thought.

As a girl, I think that women are able to do any job. There are some prejudices that women can't work in tech, or be a lawyer or something, but I find that we shouldn't be biased and think so narrow. Last year, in Belgrade(Serbia's capital)was organized a girl's day and I was invited to attend that event. Tech companies were shown to us and we could see how women can actually do that kind of job, and very successfully. We went to Telenor-that's one of the biggest company here, and we saw how all functions there. I think that a woman can be an astronaut, too, if she wants. There shouldn't be any limits. I know a man who's nanny. People were firstly sceptic about his work, but he proved them than he's really able to do that right.
Although I'm not biased at all, I still believe that there are some jobs that women are better in to men and that men are better in to women. But nowadays society is changing and I'm glad too see this improvement. We have really moved a great deal, and it good, because it allows every human to make its' own choses and to do the work he's talented the most.

Jona, I completely agree with you. Women are superheroes, they can do anything, because they are persistent enough to fight for that, and they are ambitious and hardworking. Great comment, I'm proud of being a woman!;)

LearnEnglish Teens Team, thanks a lot for this video. It's very inspiring, especially to me, since I'm a feminist. I think there's only an anatomic difference between men and women. I can't stand sexists, thinking that women are too weak, have irrational mentality and so on. Come on, people! We don't live in the ancient world of superstitious people fully depending on mother-nature. We're the people of the 21st century.

Hi Ashfaq. I've just tried the video but it works ok for me. Could you let us know which browser you're using - Internet Explorer, Chrome or another one? Also, try the other videos in Video Zone. Do they work, or can't you see them either?

I hope we can help you solve this problem.
