Adam Haggiag is the producer of Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story, the award-winning documentary about the Hollywood screen siren whose arresting looks overshadowed her scientific accomplishments. This panel takes a closer look at the social constructs and sexism of the time and how Lamarr’s ideas and inventions—which led to the creation of GPS and secure WIFI—were never credited to her.
