The lack of women and girls in computer science is a well-documented problem. Now it’s time for the average person to finally do something about it.

4. Be a role model.
5. Encourage your local school to teach girls how to code.
6. Lead a coding club for girls.
7. Recognize that computer science is an intersectional issue.
8. Understand where girls need to begin, too.
