SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- Four months after the Silicon Valley in the western U.S. state of California was rocked by a host of sexual harassment revelations, it seems that few changes have since been made to solve the lingering problem in the tech world.

Many women who revealed their alleged sexual harassment stories said there have been "few tangible changes made by those in power", according to a report by the CNN.

Four months ago, an investor made himself infamous after kissing a female entrepreneur without her consent during a meeting. Since then, numbers of women in the tech industry exposed their experiences, causing a storm in the Silicon Valley.

After that, the relevant companies promised investigations, and some investors resigned. However, the crisis still lingers on. Some insiders told media that there is huge power imbalance and the tech industry has done a little to make changes that would support women in the industry.

There is "too much power, too much money, and too few reasons to change," entrepreneur Denise Brosseau told the CNN, who is CEO of consulting firm Thought Leadership Lab.
