Can you reassure me that majoring in computer science and trying to find a job in technology and software as a woman isn't going to be terrible?

I've recently realized that I've been trying to convince myself to major in something safer because I'm worried about what I can do with a computer science degree. I think I really want to be a system admin or maybe a network admin, or maybe just something else in the field...but I hear so many horror stories about being a woman in the technology field, and it's worrying me to the point of possibly picking a career I don't really want.
There are good stories too, right? Happy endings? Do you have experience or anecdotal evidence to boost my morale?
