100th International Woman’s Day
Last Week was the 100th International Woman’s Day. On my way home I was listening to the radio and heard about a poll a newspaper had run asking "Who is your favourite influential London woman?" Loads sprang to mind but the actual results are just nuts (in my opinion). Virginia Woolf gets 0.15% of the vote, Rosalind Franklin 0.19%,Angela Hartnett 0.09%, Millicent Fawcett 0.51%......and the winner is Leona Lewis with 70.9%. Is it just me or is this completely crazy? I don't ever pick up the newspaper who did the poll, so maybe it's not meant for me but even so, surely we can do better than this?
So just to celebrate the ladies who rock...Virginia Woolf Angela Hartnett Rosalind Franklin
