Last quote by Alexandra Dean

She did say her beauty was her curse. I don't think she meant it in a shallow way. I think she knew the power it had given her and the privilege it had given her – it allowed her to escape the Nazis and had made her a movie star – but it also had completely eclipsed for other people who she really was. But she did get crushed by the world over time. And by the end of her life, according to her family, she did really think that women were judged by their looks, and because she lost hers, she had to hide away.feedback

The most recent quote attributed to Alexandra Dean came from an article called Glamorous Actress Was Secretly an Inventor Helping the Military - Before Her Tragic Final Years: “I never heard a story like this, it's just unbelievable – she affects our life every day. It's such a current story in a time when only about 24 percent of the workforce in STEM fields are women. We hear again and again that women don't have any role models and there's nobody who came before us, but what if people came before us but their stories weren't known, like Hedy? It's the basis of secure communication, this frequency hopping, and she came up with that as the idea for how to let ships communicate securely. Almost everybody in the developed world uses Hedy's technology today.”.
