About Us

WomensWork was started by Judi in 1995, when it occurred to her that young women didn’t see many female role models in their daily lives. They saw teachers and nurses of course, and secretaries on TV, but how would a high school student know that there are also women astronauts, computer scientists, or medical researchers?
