Women

The term women is the plural form of woman. A woman is a female human.

In the early 80s I started my career in IT as a trainee programmer working in a software bureau where the proportion of men and women were more or less equal. In fact, my second boss was female. In these early days we did everything. We wrote code,   we managed what was then a complicated process of printing and distributing reports, and we could re generate the whole computer from a cold start.
