p Does Facebook have a gender bias issue?
A woman who was an engineer at the social network said code written by women gets rejected more often than men, according to a report published Tuesday in The Wall Street Journal.
The analysis by the ex-employee, who wasn't named, said female engineers received 35 percent more rejections than male engineers.
The study posted internally in September also said women waited 3.9 percent longer to get their code accepted, and received 8.2 percent more comments and questions than their male counterparts.
The analysis also came about four months before Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's 6,000-word manifesto on developing "the social infrastructure" to build "a global community."
In response to the initial study, Facebook conducted a second study led by Jay Parikh, its head of infrastructure.
