Women in computer science

Read the wikipedia article on women in computer science.

The primary point of the article is how there aren't any women in computer science. There's even a suggestion to merge this article with "Declination of Women in Computer Science".


What about the women who are computer scientists? There are plenty women who do & did great research. The focus of an article titled "Women in Computing" should focus on women in computing. The picture to the right is Anita Borg

I've never enjoyed this desperation on the part of computer science to attract women. It's like a guy with no confidence and can't get a date. I have the same advice to computer science or any field that is looking to balance itself out: work on yourself!

I'm going to rewrite this Wikipedia article once I do some research of my own.
