Unfortunately, the quit rate among women in computer science is alarmingly high – only 18% of computer science graduates are women and this number has stagnated for over a decade. This is also a significant drop in the percentage of females graduating with degrees in computer science since the 1980’s when women made up on average, over 30% of the graduating class.
