Women were better programmers than men

That was my experience in the forty-one years I worked in the software business. They had the kind of mind and work style necessary to solve the problems of programming. In fact, it's likely that Ada Lovelace had a lot to do with the work of Charles Babbage, who played a large part in creating the computer. And, of course, Grace Hopper was very instrumental in creating COBOL, the first computer language that could be used on a variety of computers. 

I dealt with a fair number of woman, worked for some and worked with some woman executives. I saw no difference in their management skills than in the men I worked with and for.
