Top Computer Science Award Goes to Woman for the First Time

The highest honor in the field of Computer Science, the A.M. Turing Award, has gone to a woman for the first time. The special lady is Frances E. Allen, who worked at IBM for her entire career. She got some nice prizes with the award:

The various prizes: cufflinks, a tie clip, a certificate praising the recipient for “his accomplishments.”

Nice. She gets $100,000 too, so I guess that part is good.
