That Magic Feeling When the Words Flow. A Blog by Debi Rotmil

Dame Stephanie Shirley is a pioneer in the world of technology, and the sad thing is – you’ve never heard of her. After viewing last night’s premiere episode of Mad Men, and suffering through the infuriating depiction of how men treated women who lead in the world of advertising (if you saw it, Joan and Peggy were treated with no respect from a trio of knucklheads), you can understand why amazing women like Shirley had to hide behind a man’s name and deal with not even being able to open a bank account without her husband’s permission.

I encourage you to listen to her story. After all, story telling is what makes our mark in this world live on long after we as individuals are gone. It offers food for thought, and fuel to life’s burning fire.
