    3 is ‘Amazing’ Grace Hopper.
    1 is Jean Sammet

    Jean Sammet worked along with Grace Hopper during the creation of COBOL.

    The 2nd lady is also some computer scientist who worked with Jean Sammet for some important task.

    Women who created (Or were credited with creating) programming languages?
    1 = Jean Sammet = FORMAC
    2 = Adele Goldberg = Smalltalk-80
    3 = Grace Hopper = COBOL

    I guess it was Smalltalk-76 for Goldberg and for Hopper, more accurate guesses would be the A-2 Compiler and FLOW-MATIC.

    Jean Sammet created FORMAC.
    Adele Goldberg is a Smalltalk pioneer.
    Grace Hopper did COBOL.

    Women who conjured up programming languages?
