Is there a New Glass Ceiling for Women?

Women have reached a level playing field with men in practically every other field, but why not computer science? The Computing Research Association says that the percentage of computer science undergraduate degrees that go to women has declined every year since 2001. The New York Times has posted a fascinating article breaking down the possible causes of this trend.

Theories range from fear of becoming a stereotypical nerd to the rise of interactive video games as a “boy’s toy” that isn’t for girls.

Ladies: do these claims ring true to you? And if so, how do you believe this trend can be reversed?
