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.

6 Women Scientists Who Were Snubbed Due to Sexism "Despite enormous progress in recent decades, women still have to deal with biases against them in the sciences." [National Geographic Article] (The lack of recognition for these mothers of science is a fucking travesty)
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.
Marie Tharp: How One Woman's Discovery Shook the Foundations of Geology. Her theory was dismissed as "girl talk," starting years of academic debate. But she was "so busy making maps [that she] let them argue" until new discoveries proved her theory - that the rift in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge had been caused by land masses pulling apart - correct.
