Voltaire's partner, mathematician Emilie Chatelet, in a portrait by Latour - she died in pregnancy at 42. She was having an affair with another man, a poet, at the time. And, actually, she was married -- her husband the Marquis du Chatelet, in the French style of the time, tolerated the long relationship with Voltaire.
Gabrielle Émilie Le Tonnelier de Breteuil, marquise du Châtelet (17 December 1706 – 10 September 1749) was a French mathematician, physicist, and author during the Age of Enlightenment. Her crowning achievement is considered to be her translation and commentary on Isaac Newton's work Principia Mathematica. The translation, published posthumously in 1759, is still considered the standard French translation.

The First World War ushered women into laboratories and factories. In Britain, it may have won them the vote, argues Patricia Fara, but not the battle for equality.

Scientist Rosalind Franklin made the first clear X-ray images of #DNA’s structure. Her work was described as the most beautiful X-ray photographs ever taken. Franklin’s ‘Photo 51’ informed Crick and Watson of DNA’s double helix structure for which they were awarded a Nobel Prize. Franklin died of ovarian cancer in 1958, aged 37, her contribution to DNA’s discovery story unacknowledged. #nobelprizewinner #gogirl #science #rosalindfranklin

Marie Tharp (1920-2006). A pioneer of modern oceanography, Tharp was the first to map the unseen topography of the ocean floor on a global scale. Her observations became crucial to the eventual acceptance of the theories of plate tectonics and continental drift in the earth sciences.
