In order to learn more about the History and the great role that many women have played Throughout it, a new mobile application has been created: “Women on the map”(Women on the map), an app that vibrate every time we are in a place where a woman has made history.
In order to make it work, it is necessary to register in Field Trip, the site where the app is hosted, and configure it so that every time we are in a place where a woman has made History, she sends us a notice and we know what is what has happened there and who has been responsible.
Thus, for example, when visiting New York and passing through the Metropolitan Opera, the app will vibrate and tell us about Janet collins, the African American prima ballerina who landed a lead role or if we are visiting Lyme regis in southern Britain, he will tell us about Mary Anning, pioneer in the search for fossils in the world.
Ana Edell, director of this project, explained that “It is time for scientists, researchers, musicians, historians, etc. to be recognized. that have gone unnoticed”. “It's not that they didn't exist, it's that they just haven't told us about them. And you have to do it”
