A not-insignificant proportion of women in coding are trans women, with some joking about the ubuntu-to-estrogen pipeline and "programming socks" https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/programming-socks.

I don't know how much trading gets done by "traders" as opposed to "programmers", but I would expect that T-blockers and estrogen pills are already on the rise in the banking sphere, even if it is currently mostly in the back end.
