The Voices of the ElePHPant podcast has varied from it's usual interview style in this new episode - a panel discussion with several members of the PHP community, "Sexism in Tech".

Guests for this episode were Elizabeth Naramore, Laura Thompson, Anna Filina and Elizabeth Tucker Long. Cal and the panel discuss a few questions including:

  • Given the tech in a male dominated industry [...] why are women entitled to change a culture that doesn't want to be changed?
  • Does it make it okay if the material in question is generated by a woman if it objectifies women?
  • Does the Forbes article [on sexism in tech] carry more weight because it was written by a woman and do you agree?
