    2. 2. Women have been involved in computers since computers were first envisioned.They are present in all facets of computing and information technology. Despite this, their presence is comparatively small in these fields; see statistics below.When America's first electronic computer, ENIAC, was developed, its programmers were women. Jennifer S. Light's essay, "When ComputersWere Women," documents and describes the role of the women of ENIAC and outlines the historical omission or downplay of women's roles in computer science history.[1].
    3. 3. A proposal from an economical standpoint suggests that in order to avert the computing and IT industry from dangers such as global sourcing, a solution is needed to increase the participation of underrepresented groups like women. [2]The book Gender and Computers : Understanding the Digital Divide[1] claims that the lack of participation of females in computing excludes them from the "new economy", which calls for sophisticated computer skills in exchange for high salary positions. [6] A consequence from such exclusion will likely result in further social and gender inequality.

    5. 5. After thousands of years of (male dominance), we now stand at the beginning of the feminine era, when women will rise to their appropriate prominence, and the entire world will recognize the harmony between man and woman --The Rebbe NO SEXISM PLEASE…. It’s not about gender… not about domination… we are equal and we have different roles… we as women can contribute to this industry equally.Time to cut the crap and start working… no more isolating ourselves!
