Two years ago, we compiled a list of the Most Influential Women In Tech, in part to recognize the challenges that women in technology face—proper recognition being just one of them. We continued in 2010. Our 2011 list highlights 30 women in six categories. All of them bring unique brands of thought to their industries.

Three organizations are attacking the "girl-problem" head-on: the Girl Scouts, the National Engineers Week Foundation, and the National Center for Women & Information Technology.
