Here is a Women of the ENIAC story.  I'd like to hear Thomas Haigh's
response to this story, particularly re: the Walter Isaacson NPR story
<http://www.npr.org/sections/alltechconsidered/2014/10/06/345799830/the-forgotten-female-programmers-who-created-modern-tech>
link as compared with his *ENIAC in Action <https://mitpress.mit.edu/ENIAC>*
book.

A reminder that Thomas gave a wonderful talk about the Women programmers of
the ENIAC - and particularly about the "Other Women" who actually built the
ENIAC - for the IEEE Silicon Valley History Committee in March, whose
slides are here

and
whose video is here

Women pioneered computer programming. Then men took their industry over.
