If I had to ‘Pick’ a hero…

…. it would quite possibly be this lady:

Joan Pick.

“These days, Pick spends her time going to the library to read the papers – “It takes longer on a Thursday because I have to read the New Scientist as well, but it’s so awful” – and looking through Who’s Who and Google to find the addresses of the politicians, scientists and industry leaders she wants to write to (Pick is a prolific letter-writer, tapping out her missives in dense little letters on an old typewriter). She rode a bicycle until she felt it had become too dangerous and the last time she went on a plane, she says, was 1971″

An inspiration and a total dude-lady.
