The First Ever Computer Programme (oh – made by a woman…)

Although I am not especially interested in computers, I am interested in the amazing things that women have done and let me tell you now that the first ever computer programme was invented by a WOMAN. Not just the secretary to the man who invented the programme, but she really did it. Although dying at the age of thirty six, Ada Lovelace proved that women really aren’t useless people designed to bear children. So the next time someone expresses their distaste of women in computing, they can eat their words.
