Where did all the women go?

Many women have contributed to the development, use and application of computers. Explore the timeline and linked resources to learn more about their lives.  Our list includes just some of them, but who would you include?  Let us know your suggestions through Twitter @computermuseum #WIC  This resource was developed as part of our Women in Computing Festival 2017, entitled Where Did All the Women Go?.

With grateful thanks to Wikipedia for so much information about these pioneers.
