Happy International Women’s Day! Last year, we posted a two-part series highlighting women in technology, medicine, physics, and chemistry. This year, publications like Newsweek and Popsugar took a similar approach and featured notable women in science history.

Microsoft also blogged about their work with non-profits increasing diversity in computer science and listed a few ways to get involved with the movement.
