Eleanor Macdonald, OBE
Former wartime intelligence officer, Founder and president of Women In Management, September 1, 1910 - February 11, 2004, aged 93
Eleanor Macdonald was a radiant character; passionate in her dedication to the advancement of women at all levels. Yet she was bemused by the women’s lib movement which developed in parallel with her own brand of feminism in the Seventies and Eighties. She had more practical success, she felt, at “beating the John Knox factor” and regarded fashionable feminism as somewhat self-indulgent. She led Women In Management until 1989, when she passed the presidency to Mary Baker. She was then appointed OBE, and received an honorary doctorate from Bradford University.
