"Deemed one of the most influential women in technology, Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (1906 - 1992) was the mastermind of the first independent programming language and compiler. Hopper was a member of the United States Navy and was a part of the team that programmed the Mark I, a data calculator that was developed at Harvard University in 1944. As one of the only women on the programming team, Grace Hopper became a leader and a role model for women in technology today. Through Hopper's development of the first compiler, she changed the field of technology permanently along with setting a precedent for women in technical fields for the years to follow."
