  1. Thanks for sharing. Sadly, I am not familiar with many of these women. But my bookshelf does include biographies of Marie Curie and Rita Levi-Montalcini. The second was a birthday gift from my father in 1988. Without any sons, he was happy to encourage his oldest daughter’s interest in science and engineering.

    • Thanks for your comment Julia! Parents have such an important role in turning children towards (or away from) STEM. I’m very glad to hear that your father encouraged you 🙂

  2. What is really bad is how many times we sit in lectures listening to men being named for having achieved these things and being taught to remember their names.
