International Women’s Day
On this International Women’s Day, women are striking to make clear their value in the workplace, at home and beyond. That includes the tech world.

Despite the challenges facing any engineer who doesn’t fit in with the testosterone-fueled culture of Silicon Valley, many women have made their mark in the field — and fought to make it better.
On International Women’s Day, it’s worth celebrating a few of the tech world’s badass women.
