Women @ Energy: Susannah Green Tringe "I think it's important to expose kids to science and scientists early, so they're comfortable thinking about science as something they can do. I also think labs and universities could do more to make scientific careers compatible with raising a family, which would benefit all young scientists and reduce attrition." Read more from Susannah here.

Marie Curie (1867-1934) Two-time Nobel laureate Marie Curie discovered polonium and radium, founded the concept of radiology and — above all — made the possibility of a scientific career seem within reach for countless girls and women around the world. The first woman to receive the Nobel Prize and the first female Professor of General Physics in the Faculty of Sciences at the Sorbonne in Paris, Curie was beloved by her colleagues for her calm, singular focus, lack of pretense and professional drive. Her work with radiation is now part of the most sophisticated cancer-treatment protocols in the world, though she herself succumbed to leukemia after decades of daily radiation exposure.

Aeronautical engineer Laurel van der Wal had a career as a model, art instructor, & deputy sheriff before training to be a pilot. At UC she became an aeronautical engineer, winning the Society of Women Engineers Achievement Award in '61 when she was head of bioastronautics at Space Technology Labs. The press release emphasized that the "pretty head of bioastronautics at Space Technology Laboratories, Inc." was a "former model" even though LA Times had just named her Woman Scientist of the Year.

This is heinous. In Iran, due to government pressure, "over 30 universities have agreed to ban women from about 80 different degrees such as engineering, business, nuclear physics, and computer science (you know, the ones that can potentially steer women toward power and financial freedom)."

Ada Byron, Countess of Lovelace (1815-1852) . A brilliant mathematician, analyst and metaphysician and widely regarded as the founder of scientific computing, all while wearing a corset.

Mildred Adams Fenton (1899-1995) was an American scientist, who wrote or co-authored (with her husband) dozens of textbooks on geology and earth science, including "The Rock Book" (1940), a popular classic.

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.
