Re: Hedy Lamarr
I expect she faced far more sexism than she would have faced today, compounded by the fact that she was both a movie actress and a sex symbol. 

On the other hand, a surprising number of people then were capable of overlooking prejudice and seeing what was plainly in front of them.

Re: Hedy Lamarr
I wonder haw the real Lamar was taken seriously by those working during the war years. As it was all hush hush secret stuff at the time, it's no wonder that outside the tech industry most folks don't realize our spread spectrum technology was all due to her. pioneering thinking and efforts.

Great group of finalists
I am thrilled to see Yvette's name on there. She has had such an impactful, industry changing career. She embodies the "Tech Pioneer" title fully.

Hedy Lamarr
When I see references to Hedy Lamarr I think of Hedly Lamarr in Blazing Saddles. Thats deeply, deeply wrong of me.
