Abstract

Throughout history there have been women in technology who have made key contributions, but they have been few and far between. The chapter explores the past pervasive social and cultural contexts that hindered and practically suppressed female involvement in such fields, requiring exceptionally resilient, strong individuals to identify their interests and come to excel in those fields.
