A belated International Women's Day praising for one of my favourite women

Lisa Jardine has long been a heroine of mine: intelligent, thought provoking, the very model of a public intellectual.

So it was nice to get the hat-tip from Cloud that Jardine was the subject of one of the Guardian's regular 'In Praise of...' slots.

Fittingly, her (main) job title is professor of Renaissance studies, which seems as good a fit as any for a Renaissance woman.

Given the wonderful essays that can come up on the BBC Radio 4 'A Point of View' slot, it would be a shame if these were lost to the website reshuffle.
