The House museum Orlando Hernández of Agüimes hosted the talk "Women in technology: success in the Shade", taught by researcher Maria Dolores Afonso. The researcher said that women "have always been there, from the beginning, developing work in all areas, also in the technology. Women who have contributed innovative jobs, changing ways of thinking and doing are more than we know, and many have had a very interesting life and trajectory. And remember that the solution to any problem can be in any head; If we can be sure of something, it is not a question of gender. "
