No. 9: Women's Work (Part I)
Queens of Code by Joy L. Rankin
Pink Collars and Programmers by Anna Reser
For the first in a two-part series on women and gender in computing, guest writer and historian Joy Rankin challenges the stereotype of the visionary nerd-boy programmer by showing that women have always been largely present and active in the field of computer programming. Anna looks at AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire and analyzes their representation of women computer programmers.
