You may wonder why you should study Computer Science? Computer
science research is constantly leading to advances in medicine,
technology to aid the disabled, fundamental research in all the
sciences, art, music and more.
My favorite websites for women in computing:

within ACM, the premier academic and professional computing organization, devoted
to advancing the contributions of technical women.
