With the subtitle "The Untold Story of the Women Who Made the Internet"  this book looks at the women who have been involved in important waves in technology described byt author Claire L. Evans as unsung female heroes. Women in the book include Grace Hopper, the tenacious mathematician who led the charge for machine-independent programming languages after World War II, Elizabeth "Jake" Feinler, the one-woman Google who kept the earliest version of the Internet online, and Stacy Horn, who ran one of the first-ever social networks on a shoestring out of her New York City apartment in the 1980s.
