History of Women in Computing

I started graphing events by relative contributions to the field and date. 1842 is Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage. Without Lovelace, we would not have a computer industry, or the ideas we have now, so she was pretty much the most formative of all. 

I have put all the raw data here:

To put the contributions in perspective, I am also adding data on the computers in the world, major milestones, numbers, etc.
