We’re making progress, whether it’s women like Adi Tartako who grew Houzz to a multi-billion dollar business, Tracy Chou who has moved up the engineering ranks of some of the Valley’s best companies, Gina Bianchini who isn’t afraid of failure or women like Amelia Greenhall and Shanley Kane, the co-founders of Model View Culture, who rightly decided there needed to be a whole publication dedicated to the systematic marginalization of certain groups in tech.

Prior to her arrest, she authored a widely-circulated piece on intersectionality as exclusive content for MVC. It was later featured in the first printed issue of the magazine. You wouldn’t know any of this by looking through their website, of course, because Model View Culture swept McCallum under the rug as soon as allegations were made public. Her profile and original articles were deleted without comment or controversy. The issue was never addressed; she was simply scrubbed from existence. Advocates for “social justice” on Twitter are well known for their demands of accountability. MVC even devoted an entire issue to the subject of abuse. But when it came to holding someone from its own milieu accountable, the brand proved more important than anything else."
