Famous Women Scientists Never Before Known
After watching the movie, Cheaper By the Dozen, about Frank and Lillian Galbreth, I was curious to learn how much of the movie was fiction and how much was truth. While doing a google search, I came across a website celebrating little known but great women scientists.
Women in Science (pdf)
features 16 female scientists from earlier eras who made significant contributions in a wide range of scientific fields. Most, if not all, of these women are unknown and little celebrated, having studied and worked in eras not friendly to women in scientific careers. Nevertheless, each made scientific discoveries that have been often obscured by history or attributed to their male counterparts.
Each of these women is worth discovering, especially by girls and young women.
