Today on Your Call: How are women contributing to advances in computer technology?

On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about the role of women in computer technology.  The proportion of undergraduate Computer Science degrees received by women in the US declined from 37% in 1985 to 22% in 2005.  Are women more afraid of technology?  Is it affecting their job prospects?  How are women innovating with computer science?  What would it take for more to get involved?  Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.  Who are the women in the computer world that you admire?  It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
