Title: GirlGeeks
Url: http://www.girlgeeks.org/
Publisher: GirlGeeks
Description: GirlGeeks is an organization that encourages women to pursue and develop careers in technology. The organization started in 1998 as a documentary film about women's impact on computing throughout history. The GirlGeeks website states that "technology for communication and community-building are more important than ever...[and] we want to ensure that women and other often-overlooked groups have the freedom, motivation and resources to participate in this new world." Visitors will find that the website is divided up into the categories: "Inner Geek," "Education," "Technology," "Career," and "Business." The "Inner Geek" area has a section called "Inspiring Women" that features women in various technology industries. Visitors can also read about very young women, as young as age 12, who have already had success in these fields. The "Technology" category provides articles about updating one's knowledge and increasing one's skill-set in topical areas like shareware and open source materials, to name just a few.
