So, what's missing is this woman's suffrage moment in programming where all of a sudden they had the right to program?

In today's world, the barriers to programming are not very high at all. Computers are quite prevalent, and compilers are freely available. Perhaps it is not seen as cool to program as a woman in today's world, and that's a barrier, but to actually do code, most women can do it and choose not to. Perhaps their talents are driven towards something else as it's highly beneficial to spend your time on what your talent actually is.

And, it's also worth looking at gender norms, and how much they help and hinder the process of learning what your talent is. Objectively though, without the social pressure, you can sit in front of a computer, try programming yourself, and decide whether it's for you or not. For me, I got an immediate rush when I started programming. So, I also think it's possible addiction plays a role for good programmers from my personal experience.

Sean you've been all over the forum. Getting those posts up to 250 so you can go dormant for a few years then reappear?
