Thanks to the contributors
I would like to take this opportunity to again thank all 3 of our great innovators for their time and would also like to thank those who gave permission to use their articles and contents to provide the backdrop to the interviews. This background material is essential in enabling a 360 degree view of the work that is happening today.
I look forward to seeing a bright future for Judy, Karen, Jensine and the projects and work that is closest to their hearts.
In the first part of this blog series we looked at the historical achievements of some amazing women and how that has shaped world we share today.
A personal aside, I am a big Doctor Who fan, which includes the current series with Matt Smiths’s Doctor and the amazing River Song But the truth is I grew up with this TV programme having lived through the series as a small girl. My favourite Doctor being the 2nd Doctor, the “cosmic hobo” played by Patrick Troughton during 1966-1969. I would loved to have been his companion and travelled back through time in the TARDIS to interview the amazing historical innovators. In many ways, I have often thought that Wikipedia acts as a TARDIS (without the scary monsters and risk of death) to access information about a wide range of subjects. I am very grateful to all of the Wikipedia “librarians” for enabling my research into the historical achievements of some amazing women.
The second part of the series concentrated on the current success of three hard working and highly successful women who have made the most of living in free societies, enjoying access to the latest technology and using their time, energy and commitment to help other people to take their next innovative and life changing steps.
The final part of this series will take a brief look at how we all learn from the experience of those who have gone before us. It will also consider the role of social media in helping us work together by turning communication into interactive dialogue.
