This project grew from a multi-year effort to keep and share the history of women in computing. Katy Dickinson and Dr Susan H. Rodger worked to build a list of 300+ notable women in computing (bit.ly/NotableW).
Jessica Dickinson Goodman saw the potential to expand that list's reach and turned it a deck of playing cards that sold out at the 2014 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, then raised 500% of its goal on Kickstarter.
Through the generosity of the Backers on Kickstarter, over 500 decks went to educators around the world who are working to inspire women and girls to consider or continue careers in computing. Decks are sold at cost and all files are downloadable under CC-BY-NC-SA.
