Hello, We are Isabel, Ivana, Judit, Iris, Natalia and Mar, designers of this mural for the Museu d’Informàtica of the Polytechnic University of Valencia.
Bits en feminí is a graphic project with which some of the most important women in the world of computing are made known as a tribute, highlighting their contributions and professional achievements.
Through this installation, the advance of the female role in one of the sectors that continues to be affected by the gender gap, computer science, becomes visible. Through the elaboration of this project it has been possible to expand our network of knowledge in relation to the role of women in science. Inspired by the life trajectory of the protagonists of the mural, our intention is to encourage female participation in sectors that are not very equal in terms of gender, especially in those related to science and technology.
For this reason, we thank entities such as the Faculty of Informatics for promoting the development of projects like this one, which encourage more women to leave their mark in the history of technological evolution, highlighting the importance of having female references. A contribution that is undoubtedly essential for the improvement of a future society that is moving towards technology and equality.
