Of mice and (only) Men - Why are female coders so rare in Belgium?

While it's well-known that the IT industry is predominantly male, it's worth noting that Belgium is the country that is the most affected by this.
Why is that? What does it say about Belgium? Guillaume spent 6 months researching this and meeting with experts to find out. 💥
