When it comes to working in the field of technology, many people are discouraged by the old taboo that if you want to work in tech, you have to be a “very technical person.” However, these six liberal-minded women proved that is not so.
Ada Lovelace (1815 – 1852) – Poet, Mathematician, Translator and Inventor
Let’s start with one of the world’s first ever female programmers, Ada Lovelace.
Born to poet Lord Byron and STEM advocate Anne Isabelle Milbanke, Lovelace was one of the few women of her time to have a liberal arts background.
While helping polymath Charles Babbage design an analytical engine, Lovelace writes, “Supposing that the fundamental relations of pitched sounds in the science of harmony and of musical composition were susceptible of such expression and adaptations, the engine might compose elaborate and scientific pieces of music of any degree of complexity or extent.”
