Abstract

It has become clear that, for a variety of reasons, women CS enrollments are declining at a disproportionate rate and that the number of women "in the pipeline" is insufficient to mentor and otherwise support the development of CS interests among current young women in the field. Recommendations have been made for male assistance in this mentoring effort; and some ideas toward this end are presented here. Regrettably, in this context, it is necessary to head off charges of "patronizing" our women students lest the ideas be disregarded or trivialized.
