Product Overview

The computing profession faces a serious gender crisis. Today, fewer women enter computing than anytime in the past 25 years. This book provides an unprecedented look at the history of women and men in computing, detailing how the computing profession emerged and matured, and how the field became male coded. Women''s experiences working in offices, education, libraries, programming, and government are examined for clues on how and where women succeeded--and where they struggled. It also provides a unique international dimension with studies examining the U.S., Great Britain, Germany, Norway, and Greece. Scholars in history, gender/women''s studies, and science and technology studies, as well as department chairs and hiring directors will find this volume illuminating.
