Susan Fowler at a signing for her book, written when she still worked at Uber

Sir, Susan Fowler* is an inspired and clear-sighted choice for the FT’s Person of the Year 2017. Especially since she contrasts with last year’s choice — Donald Trump ( Letters, December 14). Change-makers are people with power or influence to bring about change (for good or ill). Ms Fowler demonstrates that it need not reside in a boardroom or an office of state. Spot on.
