The world has been so influenced by women, but it has often been behind the scenes. Historically, women have been oppressed but that did not eliminate their influence on society.

So many things have been influenced and created by women. One thing invented by women is computer software. Grace Hopper decided to join the US Navy during World War II. Later in her service she was given the title of Rear Admiral Grace Hopper. She was given the assignment to work on a new computer and she decided to call it the Mark 1. Soon after, she became a part of the forefront in computer programing later in the 1950s. Her work helped inspire so much technology and revolutionized the way computers work.

Women have clearly made a strong impact on the technical world, but one of the biggest things women have helped make an impact on is the fight towards equality, especially in the 21st century. With things like the Women's March, it’s easier than ever for people to get involved with making our world a better place.

All in all, women are making strides in our world, every day, big and small. This world would be a very different place without the influence of women.
