Women Scientists – Left Out of the History Books

May 23, 2013

I came across this Nat Geo article today and wanted to share it.  The article highlights 6 women who made significant contributions to science that was ultimately given a Nobel Prize, but the prize went to others (men only).  

Women have certainly gotten left out of history over the years. We all know there are many more than the six described here!  I did, at least, find it very interesting to learn more about these amazing women.  Who is your favorite lady from the past who has “changed” science?

    womens-stories.org launched in March 2014 to get more women scientists (and engineers) stories out to the public – to inspire girls, encourage young women, celebrate women’s accomplishments, so often left out of history books. Look for a new story every month, help make new stories.
