CODE is a relevant and timely documentary that aims to explain why more American women are not pursuing careers in computer science, despite the high demand for programmers and lucrative job opportunities available to computer science engineers. Research indicates that multiple factors are at play–from stereotypes, socioeconomic barriers, belief systems, social media, ambient belonging, impostor syndrome, to sexism–and that women are don't feel secure in this male-dominated sector. Consciously or subconsciously, women and other minorities feel they do not belong in computer science despite their aptitude in the field. CODE explores how society would be different if more women, of all socioeconomic backgrounds, were involved in coding the applications, devices and programs upon which we so heavily depend.
