Celebrate #WomensHistoryMonth with Sparkfun #WHM23 #WomenInSTEM

Adafruit womens history 23 blog

This year Sparkfun is celebrating Women’s History Month, sharing Hedy Lamarr’s story. We’ve got a ton of respect for Hedy Lamarr and are delighted to see other folks sharing her story!

March is Women’s History Month, and we want to highlight some amazing women who have made influential contributions to science and technology you probably don’t know about! Today we’re talking about Hedy Lamarr, who was born in Austria in 1914. She was a Hollywood actress known for her stunning beauty and captivating performances on screen. However, many people are unaware of her contributions to the world of technology and her groundbreaking inventions.

A couple years ago Ladyada interviewed Alexandra Dean, the Director of Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story

LADYADA: Hey everybody! It’s Ladyada! I’m interviewing Alexandra Dean, the director of a new film that just came out, Bombshell. I saw the movie, it was amazing. Thank you Alexandra!

ALEXANDRA DEAN: Thank you even more. This is a special, special treat for me. I interviewed you 6 years ago. And it was part of what inspired me to make this film.
