Through most of the 20th century, progress in science and technology was powered largely by thousands upon thousands of women who both created massively complex algorithms and executed them by hand. Over decades, machines took on the second task superbly. But the first task proved impossible to offload to machines. Today we call it "computer programming."
The contributions made by these women cannot be understated -- except that in fact, it has been.
Meet the mostly unsung women who shaped the high-tech world we live in -- the women who brought us the first computer language, the compiler, the flowchart, and so much more. Celebrate their stories, and learn about their struggles. Find out what the landscape looks like today for women in tech, and learn how you can contribute to a brighter future for all.
