The top women of tech that you probably don’t know
October 16, 2013
No, we’re not talking about women like Marissa Mayer. These are the women that made much of what we use today possible through grit, intelligence, and perseverance in the “man’s world” of technology.
Most people already know about Ada Lovelace (in illustration at left), Grace Hopper and the ENIAC programmers of World War II, of course, but many other women have made their mark in technological fields who don’t have the same level of recognition.
In celebration of Ada Lovelace Day, we’ve compiled an homage to 13 women you might never have heard of but who have made huge contributions to technology or science without quite becoming household names.
