In my opinion, the number of women in IT relative to males isn't that big an issue. There will always be a disparity in gender count in IT the same way there will be the population who go to beauty salons, move the fashion industry, compete in Formula racing and drive TV ratings for sports.

The bigger issue is how these women are treated and if they're being treated unfairly. Is there anything inherent in the current situation that dissuades women from joining (aside from their own interest)?
