Isis Wenger started a revolution of the hashtag variety.

It all started when her face began appearing around San Francisco in a massive ad campaign for her employer, a tech company called OneLogin. Along with a picture of the 22-year-old, the ad features a quote on why she liked work there, reading "My team is great. Everyone is smart, creative and hilarious."

The ads, however, drew backlash from jerks complaining that since she's an attractive woman, she can't possibly be a developer. "If their intention is to attract more women then [sic] it would have been better to choose a picture with a warm, friendly smile rather than a sexy smirk," complained one.

Head over to Digiday to read the full story about how this prompted Wenger to start the viral hashtag #ILookLikeAnEngineer, some examples of which are below.
