What does an engineer look like?

Isis Anchalee is a platform engineer at a company called OneLogin who appeared in a recruiting ad for her company. The ad sparked some sexist social media commentary from people who implied that this actual image of an actual woman who is an actual engineer was not a plausible "image of what a female engineer looks like." She launched the  hashtag #ILookLikeAnEngineer in response to show that women who are also engineers look like ... women.

Isis Anchalee wrote on Medium: "This is literally just ME, an example of ONE engineer at OneLogin."

Does this look like an engineer? Yes.

Anchalee, who is also an engineer, wrote: "I’m just a human and I prefer to keep my life simple/reserved, but it blows my mind that my fully-clothed smiling face with unbrushed hair and minimal makeup on a white wall is seemingly more controversial in some communities than this simply because of my gender."
