The film highlights breakthrough efforts that are producing more diverse programmers and shows how this critical gap can be closed. CODE asks: what would society gain from having more women and people of color code, and how do we get there?
Plot: At a time in the United States when the tech sector outpaces the overall growth of the employment market, CODE asks the important question: Where are all the women?

Some things right, basic premise is wrong.
While the movie does discuss some problems that are real in some workplaces, it is not universal, and in many ways is not the issue the filmmakers want it to be. Interesting show to watch, but some of their reasoning is fundamentally flawed.
I agree with the film that abuses should be rooted out no matter where they are, but I have a hard time with the underlying premise that all industries and professions should be evenly populated by gender, race, culture, and other factors. Some jobs are more popular for different groups than others.
There are extreme work ratios for many industries. Programming happens to be one of them. Is it an issue that (according to the US Department of Labor) women make up 91.1% of the registered nurses? Or that women represent 81.8% of elementary school teachers? Or 94.1% of childcare workers? What about how 99.9% of bricklayers and stonemasons are male? Or 99.6% of drywall installers? Or 99.5% of fire fighters? Some fields are dominated by a particular gender and that isn’t inherently a problem. Computer programming today is about 90% male, about on par with the number of nurses who are female.
If the producers were coming up with a series of documentaries that would be different. Is there one about the imbalance of female nurses to male nurses? Or the imbalance of female childcare workers to male childcare workers? Or the imbalance of male to female firefighters, or drywall installers? I don’t think so.
It is absolutely true that some schools, businesses, chat rooms, and subcultures have horrible abusive environments, but this is true across all fields. There are auto shops and construction crew offices with dirty posters and magazines in the lobby or back office, others that are ‘family friendly’. There are also many places where the reverse is true. On the opposite extreme, look at the scornful looks a man gets from all the women if he walks into a Victoria’s Secret showroom. There is plenty of sexism to go around. It should be addressed in all industries, both male-dominated and female-dominated. Sexism in all industries should be rooted out.
Yes, let’s encourage people (male and female) to take coding classes. Let’s also encourage everyone (male and female) to take classes on child rearing and nursing, and on fire prevention and home repair. Not because any of the fields are gender-dominated, but because people could benefit from the knowledge.
It mostly is an entertaining documentary, but more than anything I walked away feeling angry at the producers trying to push the agenda.
Could have been more.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions, and that’s where this film went off the rails. The history was great, but could have been more involved. It didn’t even touch on women like Kathryn Johnston (human computer for NASA) it named two for 30 seconds and moved on. Instead of championing the roles that women play in coding and computer sciences it focused on all of the discrimination – if I watched this with my students I think it would do more harm than good, because the film was so negative. It’s not a mystery that there are industries with numbers skewed for either gender – consider teaching, and then consider how many men you have ever seen teaching Elementary school. The minority demographic bashing really struck a nerve with me as statistics were offered painting some minorities into statistical miracles, but no consideration was given to the minorities that would have improved the outlook. Solutions weren’t offered for the issues either. Coding days are great – but in elementary and middle school do we really need to champion divisiveness that wouldn’t naturally exist? How much more harm are we doing by telling girls that girls aren’t computer scientists and that they should be because most aren’t already? That’s kind of a mixed message? Spending ten minutes highlighting an experience where a professional was the only female at a company and left – then spent months being harassed on social media, having her address posted and more isn’t going to drive girls into the computer programming field. This fell short, which is a shame, because it could have been something really great, and instead turned into a bash-fest, and I’m a woman so what does that tell you?
