MONTHLY MEMBER MEETING WITH JUDITH LOVE COHEN
...
The Los Angeles Section of the Society of Women Engineers presents Judith Love Cohen, former TRW Aerospace Engineer, and author of You Can Be A Woman Engineer and 17 other titles for girls considering non-traditional careers in science, sports, and arts for one of the most interesting sessions of the year.
Ms. Cohen will speak about entrepreneurship, affirmative action, encouraging the next generation of engineers, the state of the "glass ceiling," how it has changed from when she started in engineering, and what opportunities for women look like today.This discussion is especially timely in light of Larry Summers' recent remarks about why women are under-represented in the fields of math and science.
Judith was among the few women on the U.S space program as an Apollo Systems Engineer.She later joined the Hubble Space Telescope's ground system design team.Her company, Cascade Pass, is a publishing company encouraging young girls in the sciences and exploring women's careers.Her company website is (http://www.cascadepass.com/index.html).She is also the mother of four children: the eldest, Neil Siegel is Vice President of Technology at Northrop Grumman; the youngest Jack Black, will be starring in Peter Jackson's new movie King Kong.
When: Thursday, May 26th, 2005, 6:30-8:30 PM.We will socialize and tour Cascade Pass before 7pm.Judith will speak from 7-8, then take questions and sign books after 8pm.

Judy will also speak on her work on books & CD-ROMs used to encourage girls to study science.
Speaker: Judith Love Cohen, Cascade Pass, Inc.former TRW Systems Engineer in the Science Operations Ground Station for Hubble SpaceTelescope.
...
Judith Love Cohen previously worked for TRW as an engineer in the Science Operations Ground Station (SOGS) for the Hubble Space Telescope.The Aura Corporation was a subcontractor representing the science users of the Hubble Space Telescope.This gave TRW a unique opportunity by working with the astronomers who were designing the planning, real-time operations and post processing of the Hubble to design a user-engineered system.
Judy will speak of her experiences working in this environment and its communication challenges.
Judy is a registered Professional Electrical Engineer in California.She received her BS and MS degrees in Engineering from USC.She worked for TRW on NASA projects such as the Apollo Lunar Excursion Module and the Hubble Space Telescope.Judy has received numerous awards, including, the Outstanding Engineer Award from the Institute for the Advancement of Engineering and various Who's Who Registries.She also raised four children, one is an engineer and VP at TRW.
She became interested in encouraging girls to study science and engineering while active in the Society of Women Engineers.The same thinking led her to write a series of children's books."You Can Be A Woman Engineer" for 3rd to 6th grade girls was her first book.She has now done 12 books in English, 7 in Spanish and 4 CD-ROMs.

Judith Love Cohen is one of those individuals.
Her fascinating story begins at the birth of the space age which was the start of a new era in forward thinking. Judith is originally from Brooklyn, NY. While growing up, she and her late sister played complex games with their father which further developed their math skills and taught them how solve problems. She credits her father’s encouragement for her becoming an engineer. As the only female student in her advanced math class, she knew from an early age she was different. The teacher of that class was a woman and because of this Judith thought that it meant her destiny was to become a math teacher also. Her high school advisor recommended she study home economics and discouraged her from advancing herself academically. Despite this and having been shut out of the college preparatory classes, she won the school’s scholarship anyway.
...
Judith left that company and went to work for TRW now Northrop-Grumman. They also recognized her potential and paid for her master’s degree in engineering at USC. This took place during the early days of the Apollo missions.
...
Judith worked on the design of its abort guidance system, and if all else failed her system was the mission’s safety net.
...
Judith sat elbow to elbow with her “fellow†co-workers; she had to work longer, harder, and smarter to keep the same pace, and overcome great obstacles. She clarified, “It was simple to me; engineers like to figure things out and solve problems.â€
There was a stigma attached to whatever she did; imagine her workplace was akin to how a woman feels when she walks into a giant sized men’s room by accident. She managed well within its confines and chuckled while she reminisced about the photo of the Prime Minister of Israel, Golda Meir that she placed conspicuously on the wall in her office, and how she eventually taped a centerfold from Playgirl to her door.
The men around her learned that she could do anything they could do, but she could make babies as well. In the mid-sixties she made it possible for women to write their own proposals and to run their departments. Thinking about this made her chuckle again, as she revealed how it also helped to turn things on their side.
...
Despite this, working for the space program was where Judith flourished. She and a handful of her female coworkers helped shape what the program is today. They opened the doors for women who wish to work in the fields of math and science.
She had three children with her first husband.
...
His prolonged illness is what brought the different factions of the family together and inspired Judith to write and produce a play about the experience. Her daughter Rachael is the mother of an energetic five year old who Judith adores.
...
Judith explained how everything was different for her with him because by the time he was born she was older and responsible for her department. After devoting almost every minute of her professional life up to that point to landing a man on the moon, she missed the celebration at work and watched it from home. This mishap was during the summer of 69’ because her youngest son was born two weeks after the historic moment took place, while Judith was on maternity leave.
She expressed how all of her children are talented and the one thing they share is their gift for music.
...
Judith has continued her long friendship with Joanne Saliba, the school's director, and is still involved with their fundraising efforts.
...
After the Apollo missions ended, Judith worked on the Hubble Space Telescope, and now she is retired from engineering.
...
The stories are about Judith and her co-workers, Ann Dickson, Ann Maybury and Bobbie Johnson.
...
Judith Love Cohen is one of the world’s finest examples of women who made the most out of her life and lived her passion. She didn’t make excuses as to why she could not do what she wanted to do, and to her credit she is working hard at her publishing company to introduce ideas to young readers that will help to make our world a better place.
