Abstract

The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day is #BalanceforBetter. A balanced world is considered a better world and there is a call to celebrate women’s achievement. To this end, I have chosen to honour nine women in the library & information science field who have forged paths, led information industries, and served as inspirations to many of us. These women are iconoclasts and mavericks who refuse to settle to prescribed career paths or accept standard rhetoric for information provision. Thanks to the achievements of these women, we are all enriched and our profession is enhanced.
