Gender HCI – Is today’s software designed for the male brain?

Trying to catchup with the backlog of isses of Computer magazine I came across this article that talks about gender HCI:

It goes ahead to speak about how this gender bias in software might be responsible in creating a previously unrecognized hurdle for women interested in problem solving software like spreadsheets and CAD systems. It makes interesting reading.
