Abstract: The number of women in the field of technology continues to decrease. The past ratio of women to men in the computer technology workforce was 1:3, the proportions have changed but they still indicate more men are employed in technological fields than women. Throughout the paper, topics related to the unbalanced gender ratio of women in technology will be introduced and explored. These subjects include: women in technology both past and present, possible reasons for the gender disparity, and global programs for advocacy and awareness. Questions related to women in technology and ideas to consider for future research are introduced.
