Where Did All the Women Go?
Macdonald, Averil
School Science Review, v92 n341 p75-77 Jun 2011
Ask someone to name a female scientist and they will inevitably say Marie Curie. They would be very unlikely to be able to name a second. Does this mean there have been no women achieving greatness in science in the past century? In fact, there have been many and not only have they achieved great things, they have had to overcome considerable barriers in doing so. This article provides a short outline of a range of women and the barriers they overcame to achieve in science over the past century. This is not an exhaustive list of women's achievements in science as that would be far too long but it does offer an insight into the significant contribution of women to science.
