Rating: 4 out of 5

I’ve recently read Little Miss Geek: Bridging The Gap Between Girls And Technology by Belinda Parmar. I read it because I felt that, as a woman having worked as either a software developer, or a development team leader for almost 20 years, I should read it and see what resonates and what aggrevates. Also because it was mentioned at the most recent She Says Brighton, which was, appropriate enough about development.

I found the book to be well-written and full of references, allowing me to go and read more about the statements made. I didn’t find it too feminist - which was one of my concerns. I’d recommend it to anyone with an interest in technology, regardless of their gender, as a lot of the points apply to children of both genders, not just girls.
