NPR published an intriguing article called “When Women Stopped Coding,” which surprisingly shows that the number of women in programming fields has dropped significantly. You hear so much today about getting kids into coding and girls coding groups, but I feel like a lack of women is coding is a problem from the 90’s, not now.

It’s sad to see this as a growing issue, the programming fields could always benefit from more diversity.
