From the Girl's Who Code organization: "Girls Who Code's mission is to create gender parity within technology by providing a unique educational experience for young women to learn computer science. Interested participants who self-identify as female are welcome to apply to our programs. This includes students who were not assigned to the female sex at birth but live and identify as girls now. It also includes students who are legally assigned to the female sex, but who now identify as transgender or gender fluid."
