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.
We all need role models who can inspire us throughout our lives, be that as young women, aspiring leaders or changemakers. Seeing women in positions of authority, pursuing their passions, and making meaningful contributions ignites a sense of self-belief and motivation in women.
When women are prominently present across various fields and platforms, it challenges gender stereotypes and biases that often hinder our advancement and recognition. By showcasing our diverse talents, contributions, and perspectives, we will normalise women’s leadership.
Who was your role model growing up? Did she look like you? Did she come from the same background as you? As Marian Wright Edelman said “You cannot be what you cannot see”, and we want the world to see YOU: the rule-breaker, the change-maker, the leaders and trailblazer. Join our movement to shine the light on the incredible women who are making our world a better place for others.
