As a proudly woman-owned digital marketing firm, Technology Therapy® Group is all about honoring Women’s History Month in small ways this March. First established by presidential decree back in 1995, March has been known as Women’s History Month. Nearly three decades later, women are still revolutionizing tech and tech-related fields. 

We’d like to take a moment to applaud some of the females who have blazed the trail in tech over the years. As TTG enters another year, we remain committed to diversity and to innovative technologies like AI that drive solopreneurs and enterprises forward.

Famous Females in Tech History 

Here are just a handful of the amazing women who lit up their tech industries with their new concepts and inventions: 

A pioneering figure in computer science, she is renowned for creating the first algorithm intended for processing on a computer. Her work with Charles Babbage’s early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine, laid the groundwork for future programmers. She is widely credited as being the first computer programmer.

This Golden Age film star also became an important inventor, conceptualizing “frequency hopping”. Her collaboration with composer George Antheil led to a patent in 1941. Their work has profoundly influenced modern wireless communication technologies, including Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth.

A group of six women (Kay McNulty, Betty Jean Jennings, Betty Snyder, Marlyn Wescoff, Fran Bilas, and Ruth Lichterman) were recruited by the Army during World War II for their exceptional mathematical abilities to hand-calculate ballistics trajectories. They later became the first programmers of the ENIAC, the world’s first electronic digital computer, creating the foundations for modern programming without manuals, compilers, or operating systems.

Instrumental in developing the Smalltalk-80 programming language, her innovations in the 1970s are fundamental to the graphical user interfaces widely used today. Her contributions have deeply influenced the software industry.

“All sorts of things can happen when you’re open to new ideas and playing around with things.”

Stephanie Kwolek, Chemist and Inventor of Kevlar

While working at DuPont’s polymer research lab back in 1965, she made the groundbreaking discovery of Kevlar. This innovative material, resulting from her synthesis of high molecular weight aromatic polyamides, is renowned for its extraordinary strength and stiffness. Today, Kevlar has more than 200 applications and is used from lightweight body armor to components in vehicles and equipment. 

During her extensive career at NASA, she invented the illusion transmitter in 1980, a technology that projects three-dimensional images. This invention has continued to impact various fields, including medicine and technology.

As a prominent figure in the field of computer science and a United States Navy admiral, her significant contributions include programming the Harvard Mark I computer – which contributed essential calculations during World War II; and creating the first language compiler, bringing to fruition her vision of making computing more accessible to people without engineering or math backgrounds.

“Humans are allergic to change. They love to say, ‘We’ve always done it this way.’ I try to fight that. That’s why I have a clock on my wall that runs counterclockwise.”

Grace Hopper, Computer Scientist

Co-founding Sierra On-Line, she became a trailblazer in the video game industry, particularly with the “King’s Quest” series. Her innovative approach to game design, focusing on intricate puzzles and rich storytelling, has left a lasting impact.

Her seminal work in network engineering, particularly the development of the Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), has been so influential that she is often referred to as the “Mother of the Internet”. She continues to work on advancements in network and security technologies.
