These women are only a few of the female pioneers of the computer science field. Without the contributions of Ada Lovelace, Grace Hopper, Betty Holberton, and many others not mentioned, modern technology would not be nearly as advanced as it is. People generally assume that programmers are men who mess around with computers, but the truth is that women were the ones who developed programming step-by-step, without manuals. They set an example for all the young women going into STEM fields who are intimidated by the male-dominated subjects. Women in the field of computer science have led us into the age of computers, and their contributions should not be forgotten.
