    So typically as a woman when you experience gender discrimination you are told something like "you're not an area expert." :P It's not like they're going to come out and say they're not hiring you because you're a woman. But I do agree there's not enough context here to understand the real reason she wasn't taken along.

      It's a long shot I know but it could be that Google were always just after the engineering talent in the company and not another designer. Who knows other than those involved.

      It certainly isn't a stretch to picture Google only being interested in picking up engineers and not designers though although the way it's been "reported" by this single, anonymous source certainly shows they've got very little class about how they recruited in this case (not to mention the co-workers).
