The following list, compiled with the help of my team member Vanessa Cartwright, provides a brief profile of 143 [up from 78 in the original list] fabulous female futurists. It is tricky defining a futurist, so while we have largely selected those who describe themselves as working in this space, we have also included others whose work is largely that of exploring the future. We have limited this list to those who have a significant profile and impact, but I’m sure we have missed some who should be included.
