Statistics tell us that women are underrepresented in STEM careers, yet many of technology’s greatest innovations have come from women. Ada Lovelace is considered one of the first computer programmers. It was six women who programmed the important ENIAC computer during World War II. While women’s contributions to technology are often overlooked, this resource celebrates the lives and accomplishments of women inventors and innovators throughout history. Also included are chapter notes, a glossary, a further reading section containing books and websites, and an index.
