Singer, songwriter Carole King and ‘Educated’ author Tara Westover among influential Idaho women

No list of incredible Idaho women is complete without a discussion of Sacagawea, the Shoshone teen who helped guide the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1805.

Technically, this list doesn’t include Sacagawea. It focuses on Idaho women alive between 1920 and 2020, as the USA TODAY Network marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment when women in the U.S. gained the legal right to vote. In commemoration, the USA TODAY Network is naming 10 American women from all 50 states and the District of Columbia who’ve made significant contributions to their respective states and country as Women of the Century.

Even without Sacagawea, the list is rich with Idaho women who also trod adventurous paths. The 10 who made the list are American women with a record of outstanding achievement in arts and literature, business, civil rights, education, entertainment, law, media, nonprofits and philanthropy, politics, science and medicine

Rosa Parks, Condoleezza Rice, Coretta Scott King among 10 influential women from Alabama

Despite a state government that has historically hoarded power and opportunity for the few, women in Alabama have for decades championed causes and led movements to bring equity, fair treatment and opportunity to the many. Alabama women have risen from racism, poverty and prejudice to make waves that ripple across the nation, not just the state. 

Women in Alabama such as Rosa Parks and Coretta Scott King were the foot soldiers, behind-the-scenes planners and unsung caretakers of a national Civil Rights Movement buoyed by the Montgomery Bus Boycott and Selma’s voting rights marches. Black women in Alabama would carry this mantle for decades afterward, advocating for equal access to public education and labor equality in the face of rampant racism and discrimination. 

The advocacy of these women, whether through activism or art, would set the stage for other women to follow: artists and scientists such as Laverne Cox and Dr.

The lack of women in cybersecurity puts us all at greater risk

Women are highly underrepresented in the field of cybersecurity. In 2017, women’s share in the U.S. cybersecurity field was 14%, compared to 48% in the general workforce.

The problem is more acute outside the U.S. In 2018, women accounted for 10% of the cybersecurity workforce in the Asia-Pacific region, 9% in Africa, 8% in Latin America, 7% in Europe and 5% in the Middle East.

Women are even less well represented in the upper echelons of security leadership. Only 1% of female internet security workers are in senior management positions.

I study online crime and security issues facing consumers, organizations and nations. In my research, I have found that internet security requires strategies beyond technical solutions. Women’s representation is important because women tend to offer viewpoints and perspectives that are different from men’s, and these underrepresented perspectives are critical in addressing cyber risks.

Perception, awareness, and
