I love this story, but even more, I love the research component involved in bringing this story to the public. Based on a picture of ENIAC with women, another woman, Kathy Kleiman, wondered who they were. And when she didn’t believe the answer, she dug deeper to make a discovery. I am interested to watch the documentary, which can be found here: eniacprogrammers.org I think it might go into the deeper detail I crave. My daughter loved this book and it prompted good discussion about how men and women were treated differently (and in some cases still are) in the 1940’s.
