Who Exactly Wants “Women in Computing”?

A short, interactive talk by Dr. Deborah Tatar (the club adviser).

“In-so-far as we live in a post-racial, post-feminist world, answering the question of who wants women in computing should be a no-brainer.  In fact, from a post-feminist point of view, the question should not even require answering: women are individuals who do what they want.  And, furthermore, an organization like the Association for Women in Computing might seem at best quaint.  After all, we’re living in the 21st Century!  Furthermore, if there’s an AWC, why isn’t there an AMC?  I will examine these questions and provide some suggestions about how our visions of ourselves shape our work lives.  But do we live in a post-racial, post-feminist world?  And if we don’t, how do we get there?”
