The 100 years, 100 women blog profiled women in public life as part of the Civil Service's centenary celebrations of the Representation of the People Act which allowed all men and some women to vote for the first time.
Siobhan has been curating the 100 years, 100 women blog series as part of the cross-government centenary celebrations but has avoided writing one herself...until now!
Mother, wife, daughter, working professional, student, lover of Irregular Choice shoes and pasionate about history. As Rebecca says, no single one of these points defines her, yet each one make her who she is.
Bea is an absolute star, whose drive and interest lead her to the Civil Service and to write the research paper "The History of Women in the Civil Service". The paper is a must read, fascinating insight into how life and attitudes have changed over a relatively short period.
Karen has a busy role at the Competition and Markets Authority, which hopefully gives her the perfect balance between her favourite past times of laughing and organising!
Jess is one of those lucky Civil Servants whose academic interests have fed directly into a fascinating career as a Historic Reviewer. Her research into women in domestic service has fed her interests in marginal or outcast groups in women’s history.
Gillian is relatively new to the Civil Service but is making the most of her ambition and drive to make an impact already. She is clearly passionate about equality and we know she will go far!
Sunitha likes asking questions and that's probably what has led her to her working in the Government Digital Service. She is also a strong advocate for equality and explains the importance of equal representation of women in executive roles.
One job is not enough for Fay, who also runs a business selling handmade nursery décor which she set up whilst on maternity leave!
Chief Digital and Information Officer Jacky takes an empowering approach to leadership, and endeavours to create a culture that attracts, retains and nurtures people from all backgrounds.
