With the U.N. International Women's Day coming up on March 8th, the Japan Times ran a special series in this Sunday edition highlighting "... the astonishing progress being made against considerable odds by women in Japan working in a wide variety of scientific fields, long thought to be the sole preserve of men."
They selected six women who represent "Japan's brightest stars in the fields of science, technology and medicine, ranging from geophysics and cancer treatment to biodiversity and robotics." We were very pleased to find that one of these six wonderful women was our own robotics 'sensei', mentor, and friend, Yukiko Nakagawa, the founder of RT Corporation.
Congratulations Nakagawa-san! It's a well deserved honor!
