JUST HOW BIG OF A ROLE HAVE WOMEN PLAYED IN SHAPING TECHNOLOGY?
You may be surprised. Check out the impressive accomplishments of just
a few of the amazing women history forgot.
TECH HISTORY
FORGOTTEN WOMEN IN
PRESENTED BY
HAVING MORE WOMEN IN TECH,
AND RECOGNIZING AND CELEBRATING
THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENTS THAT BEGAN
OVER A CENTURY AGO AND CONTINUE
TODAY, IS VITAL TO PRODUCING A
MORE POWERFUL FUTURE.
One way of changing this is
CAREFULLY DOCUMENTING
THE ROLE WOMEN PLAYED IN
THE DAWN OF TECHNOLOGY.
In tech, girls don’t code
because girls don’t code.
Sheryl Sandberg
Facebook COO
Although the computer
wasn’t built until the 21st
century, her work earned
her the title of the FIRST
COMPUTER PROGRAMMER
IN HISTORY.
Ada LovelaceADA
LOVELACE
An English mathematician and
writer, Ada Lovelace is widely
regarded as the founder of
scientific computing. In 1843,
she published instructions for
the world’s first algorithm
intended to be processed by
a computer.
Grace Hopper was not only
one of the first programmers,
she was also the first woman
to graduate from Yale with
a Ph.D. in mathematics,
and the first woman
to reach the rank of
Admiral in the U.S. Navy.
In 1951, SHE INVENTED THE
FIRST COMPILER, effectively
creating the basis of modern
computing.
GRACE
HOPPER
Built for the US Army during
World War II, The ENIAC
(Electronic Numerical
Integrator and Computer)
was the FIRST GENERAL-
PURPOSE ELECTRONIC
DIGITAL COMPUTER.
A group of six women, commonly
referred to as “The ENIAC six,”
were charged with programming
it: Jean Jennings Bartik, Frances
“Betty” Snyder Holberton,
Kathleen McNulty Mauchly
Antonelli, Marlyn Wescoff Meltzer,
Ruth Lichterman Teitelbaum,
and Frances Bilas Spence.
JEAN JENNINGS
BARTIKAND THE ENIAC SIX
In the 1950s, Erna Hoover
developed a computerized
telephone switching system
that eliminated the danger of
overload in processing calls.
Her work is said to have
revolutionized modern
communication, and it
earned her one of the
first software patents ever
awarded to a woman.
ERNA
HOOVER
In 1969, Neil Armstrong made
history when he became the
first person to step foot on
the moon. What many people
don’t know is that ARMSTRONG
WOULDN’T HAVE MADE IT
TO THE MOON WITHOUT
MARGARET HAMILTON.
Hamilton invented the
software that allowed the
computers on Apollo 11 to
prioritize important tasks.
Without that software, it’s
likely that the mission would
have failed.
Ada LovelaceMARGARET
HAMILTON
Known by many as “The
Mother of the Internet,”
network engineer Radia
Perlman helped make
ethernet technology
a household name.
She developed
SPANNING TREE PROTOCOLS,
which enabled the scalability
of network traffic using
ethernet.
RADIA
PERLMAN
SOPHIE
WILSON
Known as the MOTHER OF THE
SMARTPHONE AND TABLET, Wilson
developed some of the world’s first
commercially successful personal
computers and created the original
ARM computer processor, which
later became one of the most
successful IP cores.
By 2012, her design
was found inside
most of the world’s
mobile computers
and smartphones.
It’s about role models.
YOU CAN’T BE
WHAT YOU CANNOT SEE.
Reshma Saujani
Founder and CEO of Girls Who Code

ARE EQUALLY REPRESENTED IN THE
TECH SECTOR STARTS WITH YOU.
