This Woman Will Probably Change The Way You Look At Signs For The Women's Bathroom Forever

The following poster is part of a project by a Scottsdale-based software company called Axosoft.

The #ItWasNeverADress project is being spearheaded Axosoft's Curator of Code Tania Katan.

The project is described on its website as an initiative to bring women into the workforce, starting with the world of software development.

It Was Never a Dress is an invitation to shift perceptions and assumptions about women and the audacious, sensitive, and powerful gestures they make every single day. In science, technology, arts, mathematics, politics, houses of worship, on the streets, and in our homes, insightful women are often uninvited, overlooked, or just plain dismissed. Through storytelling, community building, innovation and creative disruptions, It Was Never a Dress will foster necessary conversations, vital voices, and images from around the world that honor ALL women. When we see women differently... we see the world differently! Stay tuned and keep disrupting.

Katan told the Phoenix Business Journal Axosoft is working on things like informal coding events and partnering with CodaKid, a Scottsdale-based coding school that will start teaching programs out of Axosoft’s office next month.

.@taniakatan now @axosoft to get community more involved in tech. Story soon. #gitcatalyst

Axosoft was the main sponsor for the inaugural Girls in Tech conference in Phoenix, Arizona, last week.

@GirlsinTech so exciting to have you in AZ. #ItWasNeverADress #geekgirltechcon
