I suppose I was a latent feminist....

... until I found Twitter, discovered feminist writers and was caught up in NoMorePage3, appalled by EverydaySexism and then swept up in the enthusiasm around the beginning of WE. I've worked in a predominantly male environment for 40 years and in that time we've only had two women on the Board, and none in recent years, so I think it's crucial to tackle the educational and cultural bias that stops girls taking up STEM subjects, but also to challenge the perception that only those with technical training can manage technical organisations.... and that only women are capable of taking minutes and arranging meetings. I really hope WE can do this.
