How bad is Silicon Valley's sexist work culture?

James Damore, a male software engineer at Google wrote a 10-page "manifesto" criticizing his employer for pushing diversity programs. Damore said women can't get ahead in the tech industry because of biological differences with men. The memo went public and created a social media storm.
While Damore was fired, a huge online debate continues about gender stereotyping and free speech in the workplace. It's highlighting the low numbers of women and minorities in technology companies while exposing attitudes encountered by women working in tech.
