Women in Focus

This is a special section where i will be introducing a female figure that has done or is currently doing remarkable things in an industry that is seen as being dominated by men.

According to a range of studies, there is still quite a big gender gap when it comes to tech related positions., with men taking the higher percentage.

Just 18% of Computer Science bachelors at major universities in 2016 were women.

This is the reason why I want to celebrate these women and their achievements and bring them to my readers.

If you know such women that will fit well in this category please feel free to send me an email at girltechweekly@yahoo.co.uk . They don’t need to be well known, they just need to do something amazing for their community or in a field that is mostly filled with male faces.
