Girls often don't consider a career in engineering because they don't know much about it. Schemes such as those initiated by Schools into Science and Engineering, or WISE (Women into Science and Engineering) do much to promote knowledge and insight. Role models too, can be inspirational. When girls have contact with an enthusiastic relative, or close friend, they are much more likely to consider a career in engineering seriously. In this paper three women engineers (Katherine Jackson, Sue Lyon, and Elizabeth Laverick) describe what motivated them to take up engineering as a profession.
