Apple Finally Puts Women Onstage at WWDC

Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference keynote on Monday was memorable for a slew of product news, but perhaps the company's biggest move was the inclusion of female presenters. Jennifer Bailey, Apple vice president of worldwide online stores, announced new Apple Pay features. Meanwhile, Apple VP Susan Prescott introduced Apple News, the reading app resembling a slicker version of the digital magazine app Flipboard. People in the audience and watching the live stream certainly noticed the significance of having women in the lineup, which is traditionally dominated by male executives. The tech industry came under fire last year for gender inequity. Apple's first diversity report, released last year, showed 70% of the company is male, for example.
