lark founder julia hu named #1 in "2015's top 10 women in tech"

Women are drastically underrepresented in tech. That's no secret. Only 4% of venture capital partners are women; just 10% of companies that raised series A rounds last year had female founders; and less than 20% of computer science majors are women (a number that has fallen from 37% in 1985). Fortunately, the industry is starting totalk about this and some progress is being made, albeit slowly. This list includes 10 women in tech who are doing influential work right now. Some are working to break the glass ceiling in the industry, while others are chasing the Silicon Valley dream of founding the next billion-dollar startup.
