We agree with the words of author Nina Krebs: "A woman with drive and commitment to make something happen doesn't do well with restrictive comments like 'This is the way we've always done it.'" This can be seen in the achievements of Jeannette Rankin, Mary Church Terrell, Alicia Dickerson Montemayor, Sheryl Sandberg, Corizon Aquino, Benazir Bhutto, and Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. We all stand on the shoulders of these women, and countless others who've given immeasurable substance to our lives. Accomplished, forward-thinking, goal-oriented women. From whose legacies we receive knowledge; and from whose spirits receive strength.
Like them, the dynamic females we've profiled also have an unshakable passion for education, fueled in part by the historical examples that inspire us, and by the contemporary tools they're using to make each of them a leader in this young millennium. However you say it - geekdom or geekery - these women live it, promote it, breathe it, personify it. The impact of female geeks is often ignored, or, intentionally given "special mention" status.
