I haven’t done any research so I don’t have an opinion on the matter, but I just recalled recently seeing http://shape-of-code.coding-guidelines.com/2017/11/21/grace-hopper-manager-after-briefly-being-a-programmer/
Nice video of how Grace Hopper got into programming and did what she did. Also, some great historical context on women in computing, esp WW2’s effect. Then, great examples on importance of computing in general. This vid hits a lot of angles.
Did a title experiment of putting length in there for people who avoid long videos but are cool with shorter ones. I’m one of those: rather spend a few minutes skimming text than 50min-1hr watching same material. Also, put Grace’s name in the title for context.
Edit to add this video of David Letterman interviewing her.
Edit 2 (Still watching the vid) she very casually busts him out on a dumb question. I’m not spoiling it. :)
