From sunrise in Antarctica to sunset in Hawaii – spanning a 44 hour day on 11 August 2008 (in honour of the date Hedy Lamarr was awarded the spread spectrum patent in 1942) we followed the lives of 36 women in technology across the globe.

We followed the sun and the women – their lives and love of technology have been captured via photographic imagery, profiles and a “Day in the Life of...” diary. These tools describe what they do and how they contribute to our world and their shared passion for technology.

All continents are covered with albums for Antarctica, Oceania, Asia, Africa, Mediterranean, Europe, Scandinavia, UK & The Republic of Ireland, North America East Coast, Caribbean, Middle America, South America and North America West Coast. A diversity of countries including Serbia, Malta, Jamaica, Denmark, Mexico, Peru and Russia are included.

Note to journalists: we can provide images for publication - email us for further information.
