Cosmopolitan, April 1967 — when computer programming was considered an ideal woman’s occupation.

In an article titled “The Computer Girls,” the magazine described the field as offering better job opportunities for women than many other professional careers. As computer scientist Dr. Grace Hopper told a reporter, programming was “just like planning a dinner. You have to plan ahead and schedule everything so that it’s ready when you need it…. Women are ‘naturals’ at computer programming.” 

Women ARE ‘naturals’ at computer programming! Well done late 1960s
