Not software as such this time but some posters that I put together to encourage the girls in my all girls school to give serious thought to Design, Technology and Engineering. The women in these posters did so much to challenge the nonsense view that designing and making things is an exclusively male occupation. 

The posters are in .PDF format but the original files are now included (at long last!) in their native .SVG format. They were created in Inkscape. You are welcome to use them for any non-profit purpose.

We did try to make sure that all images were licenced for reuse but if we missed something, email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will put it right.
