The nonprofit, Girls Who Code, has a mission to close the gender gap in technology and has put out a new film and website to show female coders’ contributions and how broken the Internet would be without the valuable work done by women. The short film “Missing Code” kicks off the campaign and features a young woman trying to navigate a glitchy, faulty internet.
The campaign also includes an interactive portal where visitors can surf an alternate, dystopian internet that’s missing the code written by women. The portal features mocked-up homepages of top platforms, including Teen Vogue, Sephora and Adidas, reprogrammed to show just how crucial women are to the field.
