In 2014, people across the world saw a lead scientist from the European Space Agency appear on international television to talk about the Philae lander mission wearing a garment covered in scantily-clad women. It became known as “that shirt.” Elly responded by designing “that other shirt,” which features over 50 notable women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics).
Her successful Kickstarter campaign led to the forma- tion of a non-profit, SMLX Good, which supports STEM programmes for girls and has raised over $40,000. Hear how Elly supports women in STEM & EDI through SMLX Good.
