BBC 100 Women 2019: Who is on the list this year?
The BBC has revealed its list of 100 inspiring and influential women from around the world for 2019, and Artist Amy Karle is on it. This year 100 Women is asking: what would the future look like if it were driven by women? From climate change activist Greta Thunberg, to trans woman Nisha Ayub who was put into a male prison aged 21, many on the list are driving change on behalf of women everywhere. They give us their vision of what life could look like in 2030. Born with a rare condition, Amy Karle grew up fascinated by the possibility of what the human body could be capable of with the right technology.
