International Women’s Day


For national women’s day my most inspirational women:

Florence Nightingale – Cause statistics are cool and she was one of the first to make use of pie charts to change things. She was also the first female member of the royal statistical society. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florence_Nightingale

Webchick – Angie Byron – Co-maintainer of Drupal 7 and generally a tech great. http://twitter.com/#!/Webchick and she has done some good talks on women in open source that can be googled but here is an aritlce: http://www.cmswire.com/cms/web-cms/open-web-vancouver-2009-want-more-women-in-your-project-004815.php

Princess Marie Bonaparte – Her story about how she went about researching about the clitoris is awesome. http://blog.museumofsex.com/the-rule-of-thumb-vagina-types-and-variability-of-female-orgasm/ (Warning, some people may not like these pictures!)

Vicky Beeching: Her songs are great and she has an amazing blog. The way she goes about using social media is really interesting. http://vickybeeching.com/blog/
