On the ground, there are smaller, but equally powerful movements dedicated to helping women and girls break into the tech scene. One of the individuals spearheading her own project is Audrey Eschright, from Portland, Oregon. Eschright is the founder of The Recompiler, a self-described ‘feminist hacking’ magazine, dedicated to exploring and publishing issues of technology through works written by women. The Recompiler has gained traction as a young but promising magazine that, as New York Magazine says, “arrived just on time.”

So engaging is the voice and content of the magazine that it’s easy to forget how radical a venture this is in design—a technical magazine compiled and written almost entirely by women is essentially unheard of in the maker world. That, in and of itself, makes The Recompiler profound and political in a heavily male-dominated profession.
