Did you know that Albert Einstein’s first wife, physicist Mileva Marić contributed significantly to his groundbreaking science? Or that without Emily Warren Roebling the Brooklyn Bridge might never have been completed? And that three African-American mathematicians (Katherine Goble Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson) were essential to the success of early space flights by Nasa. History is full of invisible women. Women who have made major contributions in science, economics, business, media and arts and whose work has gone unnoticed.

Join our movement to shine the light on the incredible women who are making our world a better place for others.
