Breaking up the boys’ club: Flipkart’s women engineers are at the forefront of a quiet revolution in Indian tech

Long plagued by gender stereotypes and a lack of representation, the software engineering field has the reputation of being a “boys club”. This reputation is even more pronounced in India, where family pressure and the lack of a support system cause a lot of women to drop out of STEM jobs after their first few years. However, the trend is changing slowly but steadily, with a new generation of ambitious women engineers leading a quiet revolution in the field. These women are also mentoring younger students to create a new crop of women engineers who receive the guidance they did not receive.
