This chapter focuses on computer science (CS) education in Israel, which is known as the “Start-Up Nation” due to its high level of technological innovation and high number of start-ups in the country (Sensor and Singer, 2009). It tells a story, from a gender perspective, that starts in high school, passes through the military service and university stages, and concludes with what happens to female computer scientists in the job market, whether it be in academia or industry. We show that, as expected, external characteristics and cultural aspects matter in determining women’s participation in CS education and CS professions.
