Human Rights Watch has named some of China's biggest tech companies and the government for discrimination against women in job advertisings.  Big names like Alibaba, Baidu, Huawei and Tencent have all been named.
CNN, "Human Rights Watch said that its review of Alibaba's job ads found "a troubling pattern of gender discrimination, including ads that openly state a preference for male applicants, use female employees' appearances to attract male applicants, or highlight only males as examples of high-performing employees."


"The reason I joined Tencent originated from a primal impulse. It was mainly because the ladies at human resources and that interviewed me were very pretty." an employee said.


"a video posted on an official Baidu social media account in September 2016 in which a male company employee said that one of the reasons that he was "so happy every day" was because he could "go to work with beautiful girls."


"Huawei posted a message on social media promoting a job fair in 2015 that asked, "Do you want your wages to increase at a rate faster than housing prices, and to marry a fair-skinned, rich, and beautiful [woman] and enter the peak of your life?"

Gender discrimination in the job hunting appears to be a worldwide phenomenon. Even in the workplaces, women have to work considerably harder than their male counterparts to get the same recognition and rewards.

"Yet you see lots of WOMEN on Chinese construction sites pushing wheelbarrows, carrying sacks of cement, mixing sand."

The OP is about women in tech companies being discriminated against, not about those at construction sites!

Coming from a local like you, it means Human Rights Watch is spot on!One must wonder why it often takes a foreign organisation to expose such misdeeds!
