To celebrate International Women’s Day today, BBC 100 Women will be showcasing inspirational stories from women in the UK and across the world. 100 Women names 100 influential and inspirational women around the world every year. We create documentaries, features and interviews about their lives, giving more space for stories that put women at the centre.
One of the women showcased today is FANY veteran Helen Taylor Thompson, who sent coded messages to spies in occupied France during World War II. Watch her inspirational interview here.
