Significant women?

Nominations close on Monday for a BBC Two The Culture Show poll to uncover the individual who has played the most significant part in shaping modern British life. ... But amid the hundreds suggested by text and e-mail, barely 10 per cent are women.

See, even amongst the viewers of a BBC2 Culture show, who are surely far more likely than the average Brit to be of the liberal, politically correct cast of mind, women are STILL less likely to be seen as significantly influential on our culture. However, I think we can reasonably expect the producers to bias their selection procedure and make sure that at least one woman makes into into the three finalists.
