Abstract: In the year 1985, Computer Science and Information Technology classes were very new and different than other STEM disciplines of that time period. Women back then can be seen in these fields more so than in 2005, about twenty (20) years after. There are some factors researchers found that can be related to the decline in women's interest in the technology world. This paper will go into more depth regarding women in the technical world ranging from the year 1985 to 2016. The presence of a gender gap and less diversity in the workplace can lead to lower production rates, creativity and overall knowledge of the group or organization. This research will investigate the issue of women not having not having much interest in the world of technology.
