Woman of the Day – Temple Grandin

I am starting a new feature – Woman of the Day.

In a quick look around Twitter, through Google searches… I have not been able to find a Woman of the Day feature (well Maxim has one, and so does some Russian mail order bride company, but those are not exactly what I am talking about.)

Temple Grandin from the Huffington Post

Today’s woman of the Day is Temple Grandin. Autism advocate, groundbreaking livestock handling facilities designer, Doctor of Animal Science, professor at Colorado State University, so much more.

Last night the amazing HBO movie about her life won for Dramatic Actress in TV Movie or Miniseries (Clare Danes), Supporting Actress (Julia Ormond), Supporting Actor (David Straithairn), Director (Mick Jackson) and for Made for TV Movie. Well deserved. Everyone should see this. Also, it was Dr. Grandin’s birthday, as the winning team announced. It just seems a perfect moment to name Temple Grandin our very first “Woman of the Day”.
