The Computer Herstory Project

 

While thousands of women played key roles in the development and deployment of modern computing and the Internet, their contributions have often gone unrecognized. 

This project identifies these computing pioneers around the world by name and explains the historical context of their contributions. 

The project will proceed in four stages: 

1. With the assistance of international partner organizations and individual contributors, identify women over 65 years of age (or deceased) who have contributed to the development of computing or key aspects of adoption.

 

2. Create a definitive record documenting the contributions of these pioneers to academia, industry or government.

 

3. Build out Internet resources in relevant languages explaining the role of each pioneer in computing history. 

4. Connect these new resources into a chronological global history of women in computing.
