Writer, editor and spokesperson for millennial women Zing Tsjeng looks at the influential women leaders and scientists that history has forgotten and puts them squarely back on the map.

In Forgotten Women: The Leaders, Tsjeng uncovers the stories of a host of women whose impact on history has not been fully acknowledged. They include Grace O’Malley, the 16th-century Irish pirate queen; Sylvia Rivera, who spearheaded the modern transgender rights movement; and Amina of Zazzau, the formidable ancient Muslim warrior queen of Northern Nigeria. In her follow-up, Forgotten Women: The Scientists, she does the same for 48 scientific pioneers.

Tsjeng is UK editor of Vice.com’s Broadly channel, which has been hailed ‘the slickest feminist channel around’. She also writes for the Guardian and Dazed and has appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Late Night Woman’s Hour, and has gained a reputation as a spokesperson for millennial women.

This event is part of a series on women in society sponsored by HSBC.
