“Women Are Just Not Interested in Computer Science”: a Convenient Falsehood, a Convenient Truth

Abstract [en]

"Women are just not interested'' is a convenient justification for the absence of women in computer science. This paper questions this simplification; it admits that women have not shown considerable interest toward computer science by referring to the relevant statistics and common observations by experts in the field. Second, it analyses several diverse factors that may have led to this lack of interest. This paper also points out the importance of women's involvement in this field, and discusses some possible solutions.
