Kickstarter Open: “Notable Women in Computing Card Deck”

Our Kickstarter crowd funding request to support the second edition of the “Notable Women in Computing Card Deck” is now open!

Women have been leaders in computing from the start, but not enough of our contributions are remembered.

Keep our history.

Help fund a “Notable Women in Computing Card Deck” featuring 54 remarkable women in computer science. Give a deck to a cousin who’s not sure if girls can be engineers. Bring it to your poker night to make a point. Learn more about the history and future of women in computer science. By becoming a Backer, you help us bring the cost of producing these decks from $18/deck to $10/deck and ship decks to educators who can’t afford them.

This Kickstarter is to fund a printing of the second edition. We’re distributing the first edition at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (GHC) right now and want to incorporate our lessons-learned in the second edition.

Professor Susan Rodger, my daughter Jessica Dickinson Goodman, and I welcome your support.
