Three women scholars you should know

Geoff Riley

28th June 2015

Cesar Higaldo lauds three women scholars who are not just remarkable in their academic accomplishments, but also, represent three great examples of people that fought incumbent paradigms after seeing features of the world that were overlooked by their male peers. I am delighted that he has included the remarkable Elinor Ostrom in his selection - at present the only woman to have been awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics. Jane Jacobs (Urbanist) and Elizabeth Eisenstein (Historian) complete a remarkable trio.
