We seek to investigate whether the value currently placed on personal projects negatively affects women in the field. More specifically, how does the stress on personal projects affect female underrepresentation in computer science? Is this a reason women do not feel included in the tech world? How do personal projects affect how women view computer science compared to other fields?
