In my experience, the women who are most often genuinely abused, oppressed and disrespected in tech are those who have the skill, attitude and strength to excel at business/technical. They take the abuse, and the insult of seeing people occupy positions with no technical orientation who think they belong there because of their vagina, with quiet resentment - only revealing their feelings to their fellow geek co-workers who can understand. This woman's mistake was probably that she openly and honestly expressed her opposition to certain axioms or comments because she follows different principles and has different beliefs. I knew better than to do that - you have find ways of not responding or responding without agreeing but in a way that confuses the marxist so they can't extract a further grievance.
