Want to know a secret?
Women have been part of tech from the START.
Ada Lovelace - Considered the first programmer
Admiral Grace Hopper - Developed the first compiler
Hedy Lamarr - Inventor; developed frequency-hopping spectrum; actress
Katherine Johnson - Mastered complex manual calculations & helped pioneer the use of computers at NASA
Margaret Hamilton - Director of division that developed software for Apollo
During World War II, women operated some of the first computational machines used for codebreaking
I even found out recently that even in the 50s-60s, the women who worked on computers started their computer companies, or did freelance work in programming, worked at home doing programming.
What happened?
Professors told female students that they were far “too pretty” to be studying electrical engineering - Ellen Spertus / NY Times
Boys were cheered on for playing with construction sets & electronics kits; girls were steered toward dolls & toy kitchens - NY Times
Schools & companies share responsibility to make tech a good industry for women, not a TOXIC one.
You deserve to be here!

You can do it too! (The Web helped us a lot)
Git it, gurl
The work you do while you procrastinate is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life
Girls support girls
The two states of every programmer
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away
Design is content with intent. Intent without content is decoration. Content without intent is noise.
Modes passent, le style est eternel
Web design is people all the way down
My mother told me to be a lady, and for her, that meant be your own person, be independent
