From Innovation Hub: – How have female innovators fundamentally altered our lives? In this special Women's History Month edition of Innovation Hub, host Kara Miller talks with Wendy Kopp, who conceived of Teach for America as a college student and helped the organization change the nation's educational system.

In the medical realm, Dr. Paula Hammond joins Kara to discuss her pioneering cancer research at MIT and how she’s using nanotechnology to achieve scientific breakthroughs.

And historian Paula Byrne argues that one of the greatest female writers ever, Jane Austen, was both a transformative artist and a powerful career woman.

Join us and take a peek into the world of great women innovators.
