Lara Croft of the video game 'Tomb Raider.' - 

We're looking at a question that Marketplace Tech will visit regularly: Who is tech? This week we're talking with women in the tech world, learning about the issues they face and the changing landscape of the tech workplace. 

Of course, we're far from the first people to start this conversation. Last November, the hashtag #1reasonwhy started an international conversation on Twitter about sexism in the video game industry. Soon after, today's guest on our show, Rhianna Pratchett, a veteran video game writer who has just finished an overhaul of "Tomb Raider", started the hashtag #1reasontobe. And if you're looking for even more inspiration, check out hashtag #1reasonmentors.

Do you work in the tech world? If so, could you distill the issues facing women in your industry into one tweet or one hashtag? Tell us in a comment below. 

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
