Researching women in computing history


Digital rights expert Kathy Kleiman describes in this TED-talk, her efforts to uncover the hidden story behind an old photograph she found as an undergraduate researcher. Despite showing both men and women working on the groundbreaking Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC) in 1946, the caption only named the men. What followed for Kleiman was a years-long journey to locate and celebrate the achievements of these pioneering women - ENIAC's first programmers.
