Tutor description

This paper is provided as study guides only please do not submit this document directly to any university. A great number of women were involved in the early days of computer development, and they are often not given the credit they deserve for excelling in a "man's profession." In some cases, the early women pioneers have been overshadowed by their husband's accomplishments in the field (Lee 15), while society simply looks over others, even though "women have made fundamental impact…in the ease of use of computers…Women played a large role in making computers more accessible to society as a whole" (Gurer, "Women" 117). The pioneer women were ecstatic to be involved in the evolution of this important scientific field (Gurer, "Pioneering Women" 177), and women today are finally being recognized for their efforts in the development of computer technology.
