Product Details


Abbate’s chapters are, as readers of her earlier work expect, trenchant, precise, and compelling, for she carefully connects technical considerations with social dimensions to provide thick description of behaviors in action.—Carol Colatrella, nternational Journal of Gender, Science, and Technology

This book is good reading for anyone who would like to explore the challenges of setting policies and gain a better understanding of the gender dynamics of a scientific and technical workforce.

Maxine Cohen, Computing Reviews

Through the stories of early women programmers such as the World War II ‘Wrens’ who worked on top-secret code decryption, entrepreneurs such as Stephanie Shirley who created and ran her own computing firm, and current-day computer scientists such as Anita Borg, Abbate does a marvelous job of describing the excitement, fun, and satisfaction that women past and present have found, and will continue to find, in computing work.

Caroline Clarke Hayes, Technology and Culture
