+Glamour Magazine  35 Women Under 35 Who Are Changing the Tech Industry by +Donna Fenn featuring +Limor Fried from +Adafruit Industries photo by JOÃO CANZIANI
http://www.glamour.com/inspired/2014/09/top-new-women-leaders-in-technology/6

Limor Fried, 35, founder of the electronics and tutorial company, Adafruit

Ever want to make your own mini robot? Fried's company, Adafruit, makes that possible, selling open-source hardware kits to let tech gurus or everyday hobbyists DIY their own products. It all started when Fried made her own MP3 player and put the how-to on her website. "People kept emailing me, saying, 'I saw your project, and I want to build that too. Can you send me a kit?'" she says. "So I thought, Maybe I should start a company." Fried, the first female engineer ever to appear on the cover of Wired, did just that, and last year Adafruit earned more than $22 million in revenue. 

Her words to live by: "I get to choose my own destiny. And you can look however you want because you're the boss."

This is an amazing group of women!

Thanks for sharing my article, Lee! #hamradio  
 
The number of YL's (young ladies) with #hamradio  licenses in our family is a cause for celebration.  Trying to keep up with our YL's, two of our young men became licensed operators during the holiday season.
  
Ham net participation is never higher than when our YL's are on air as the net control.  Adding the tonal qualities of a YL who knows her stuff to the broadcast causes net activity to come alive.

Us seasoned older operators love to hear young folks with an interest in the hobby on air and participating in the nets. I enjoy having them sit by me during a net because they can still pull call signs out of the mud thanks to their younger ears.  hi hi. 

Remembering the YL's of yesterday is the focus of an article by  +AshleyHennefer : "YL 33: The First Female Ham Radio Operators, and their Awesome Legacy"  (link to the article below)

Hats off to all of these early Female Ham Radio operators and to all the YL's and xYL's with licenses today.

Here are some YL's in action on YouTube:
