I cannot help but take exception to last week's Foresight.
The implication of Karl Thompson's review of the Megastructures programme on the Millau Bridge is that women have no interest in engineering, which is patently not true.
Speaking as a woman from a non-engineering background, on a recent trip to Copenhagen I deliberately flew my family into Malmü purely to experience crossing the Øresund Bridge.
While across all sectors of engineering women are still out-numbered by at least nine to one, it is unhelpful of NCE to continue to promulgate the myth that engineering is a male preserve. Women are just as capable of bridge, or indeed any other type, of geekdom as men!
