6. If it isn't hostility to women, it could be devaluation of certain cognitive styles, e.g.

the sorts of cognitive styles that produce comprehensive & coherent documentation that describes and tells the story of systems, due partly to budgetary pressures + partly also to proprietary claims, or the cognitive styles that articulates the specific system characteristics to the specific qualities, cognitive and otherwise, of trainees.

I am not a sexist, but these are things that, on an average, women have a tendency to value higher and business machines DO NOT, so the machines/spreadsheets just keep sucking people in, chewing them up, spitting them out, and enslaving/imprisoning the ones it does retain until they burn out. Lather. Rinse. Repeat. Because to authentically empower first level "techies" horizontally would be a threat to power structures and they might ask for more money.
