Video: The Women of Station X


02.03.2011 - 00:32

Bletchley Park was the central location for the UK's code breaking efforts during WW2. It is not well-known that women made up the majority of the personnel and made a significant contribution to the code breaking.

The Women of Station X video project, organised by the BCSWomen group as part of the BCS 50th anniversary celebrations, collected together the oral histories of the Bletchley women who worked on the first computers to ensure their experiences and contributions are not forgotten. The founder of BCSWomen is Dr Sue Black, a passionate supporter for the work of the Bletchley Park Trust, whose own website can be found here

This project was funded jointly by the British Computer Society 50th Anniversary programme and the UK Resource Centre for Women in SET
