To celebrate, DEV is highlighting stories from self-identifying women and non-binary people who code. “Nevertheless, She Coded” amplifies the importance of challenging stereotypes, fighting bias, and celebrating the achievements of self-identifying women and non-binary individuals. We will begin highlighting stories on March 6th and continue through March 9th.
We started our “Nevertheless, She Coded” celebration in 2017 and I’m happy to share that #SheCoded, #TheyCoded, and #SheCodedAlly has grown to become a collection of over 500 posts from people all around the world. The stories are relatable, inspirational, infuriating, comical, you name it. What do they all have in common? Each story and piece of advice is insightful, personal, and important.
“Each for Equal” is the official 2020 theme of International Women’s Day. Similar to last year, we are welcoming allies to participate so that we can all voice the pressing need to create a gender equal world. We are all parts of a whole; and collectively, we can make change happen.
We hope you’ll spend some time getting lost in our library of stories, but even more, we hope you’ll contribute to the collective and share your own journey. For those of you who participated in the past, we encourage you to submit another post.
We’ll be featuring your stories all over DEV and the internet at large - please join us in amplifying this important day!

Note: "Nevertheless, She Coded" was inspired by International Women's Day. We include and elevate non-binary people who are interested in participating and sharing their story. However, we understand that some members who identify as non-binary appreciate the inclusion while others may want to celebrate self-identifying women only.
PS - We have a new collection of SheCoded Merch available in the DEV Shop!
