Apple Finally Puts Women Onstage

History was made Monday at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference when women took the stage for the first time during a keynote presentation, Bloomberg reports.

Jennifer Bailey, vice president of Apple Pay, and Susan Prescott, both separately graced the crowd of journalists and software developers.

The company's public events have long been noticeably absent of prominent women. And while Apple employs more women in tech positions than Google (20 percent vs. 18 percent), Apple still lags in female leadership.

And while women's presence at Monday's conference marks progress for women in tech, it reinforces the fact that women still have a long way to go.
