This paper recounts our experience in addressing recruitment and retention of women in our introductory Computer Science course for intending majors. In the past we have concentrated on retention, and present the background to these efforts, together with our results. We then relate our experience in recruitment over this period and currently, and discuss the possible relationships between recruitment, participation, and retention.
