Members in the News
Thuy Vu, host of "KQED Newsroom," was chosen as on of the 30 most inspirational women during Women's History Month by the San Jose Mercury News and the East Bay Times
Eleanor Chang was profiled in an episode of "KQED Newsroom" on her participation in the Women's March in DC and what made her decide to become politically active for the first time at 60 years old. She was interviewed by fellow IWF member, Thuy Vu, the host of "KQED Newsroom." The interview was aired on Friday, April 28 at 7pm on Channel 9 as part of the program's one-hour special on the first 100 days of the Trump administration.
Our dear friend and long time former IWF member, Marian Diamond, died in her home in Oakland on July 25. She was a groundbreaking brain researcher at UC Berkeley that established the plasticity of the brain, meaning that the brain is subject to growth or attrition by the nature of its environment. In 1984 Marian was asked to study a preserved slice of Albert Einstein’s brain and found more glial cells than in the average human brain. Some scientists now believe that glial cells play a role in developing human imagination.
Members recall a fascinating event with Marian presenting on brain gender differences, she even brought along a real preserved human brain. Marian was interviewed as one of 5 significant women leaders for an Oral History, sponsored by the IWF NorCal Legacy Foundation.

A private service has been planned for Marian. You can read Marian's entire obit here.
