There is a growing emphasis placed today on women in technology. In the past, however, women faced stereotypes that prevented them from pursuing jobs in tech. The recent movie “Hidden Figures” is an eye-opener, showcasing early progress made by women of color working for NASA. The idea that black women had a big hand in pushing the use of computer programming has been hidden for too long. Films like these serve as an inspiration for people, women and minorities to engage in science and technology.
