Female Computer Scientists

Here is a paper by Dr. Ellen Spertus, about gender inequity in Computer Science. I suppose it applies equally well to any other technical or engineering field.

What's sad is that even though the paper was published in 1991, most of the problems she talks about are still true.

It's a fairly long paper, and clumsy to navigate, but still definitely worth the read, especially if you are in or are contemplating entering a technical field.
