There are many reasons for the lack of women choosing to study computing: perceptions, experience or confidence. We have created a timeline of important milestones regarding the presence of women in computing in the UK. This has an emphasis on IT education in the UK and on the introduction of the national curriculum.
Our youtube timeline provides a new way to explore the events that have affected the curriculum up to the present day, especially with the current changes being made to the UK education system. Take a look and see what you think.
This is also an interactive timeline: click on the links to read the various reports and publications. Please let us know if you would like anything else adding to this timeline, or if you would like a downloadable PDF version.
