In my opinion, one of the most profound women in computing world of her time was Ada Lovelace. She had a profound impact being a woman and being so skilled in the area of mathematics. During the time that she was alive, many women were not viewed highly upon if they ventured out of the kitchen or home. Having the ability to be tutored must have been very empowering for her and gave her courage to achieve the things that she did. Being a woman at her time and achieving such great things was also from the help of her husband and economic status. Most husbands at the time did not want their wife’s out in the ‘public eye’ and with his acceptance of her skills Ada was able to use them to her full potential. Even with the computing world being so male dominated, she was still able to find a place and leave her mark in history. One of the most recognized contributions that Ada gave to the computing world was her translation of an Italian manuscript. The manuscript that she translated was on the Analytical Engine and she worked directly with Charles Babbage on this project. She understood the plans and procedures of the Analytical Engine and was able to articulate the true meaning of the manuscript so that it could be understood correctly in English. Ada Lovelace was almost as equally skilled as Charles Babbage in mathematics and was able to help greatly in the process of building the Analytical Engine.
