Female Scientist Stamp by Kezzi-Rose Female Scientist Stamp by Kezzi-Rose
Big up to all my fellow girls in science!! :woohoo:
The awesome achievements of female scientists have historically been undercelebrated and overshadowed by their male counterparts, since women taking an interest in science went against typical gender roles. It's great that now, in the 21st Century, the world of science is becoming a more equal place! Here's to all the kick-ass ladies who love finding out new things about our universe ♥


Note: I chose girly colours because I stand for the idea that prettiness and femininity can coexist with intelligence and badassery - but if you want something more neutral, here's another version!
Female Scientist Stamp by Kezzi-Rose

Some Kick-Ass Science Ladies Through History
1. Caroline Herschel (1750-1848): a brilliant astronomer and the first woman to discover a comet. She created a groundbreaking catalogue of nebulae, increasing the number of known star clusters from just 100 to 2,500! She received a gold medal from the Royal Astronomical Society.
2. Mary Anning (1799-1847): considered the mama of palaeontology, she exhumed her first fossil (the famous Ichthyosaur) age 11 and went on to find thousands of fossils which helped build a picture of the Jurassic world. Despite having very little formal education she completely taught herself anatomy, biology and geology, and was the expert of her time!
3. Ada Lovelace (1815-1852): an incredible mathematician who wrote the first algorithm to be carried out by a machine - making her the first ever computer programmer! 
4. Marie Curie (1867-1934): famous for her groundbreaking work on radioactivity, leading to applications in curing cancer. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, and the first person ever to win a second one!
5. Lise Meitner (1878-1968): Lise pursued radioactivity research against all odds (a Jewish Austrian woman in Germany) and collaborated with scientist Otto Hahn. Although he discovered uranium atoms could be split, she is the one who calculated the energy of this reaction and named it 'nuclear fission', discovering a process that would become an important energy source and lead to the creation of the atomic bomb. However, her part in this discovery was ignored and the 1944 Nobel Prize went to Hahn instead: despite this, she still continued her research into her 80s.
6. Rosalind Franklin (1920-1958): the structure of DNA was determined thanks to Rosalind's work, although all the credit was given to male scientists James Watson and Francis Crick who saw her work in the lab and published it before she was able to do so herself. She also undertook groundbreaking work on the molecular structures of coal and graphite, and X-ray diffraction.
7. Hedy Lamarr (1914-2000): a beautiful movie star during MCM's 'Golden Age', credited with portraying the first sex scene in film history - and also paved the way for today's wireless communications (including Bluetooth and WiFi) with her research during the war, arguably one of the most important discoveries of the modern age!


This is just a handful of the great women we should all know and celebrate alongside men like Einstein, Darwin and Stephen Hawking. Despite often coming up against barriers due to their gender, which gave them difficulties men didn't have to deal with, they still pursued their passions and so should be an inspiration to us all.

Yay for science!  I am a dummy!

I keep seeing pro female scientist stuff everywhere, and I even helped at an event aimed to that (Enlarge Your Horizons) and I just want to work in science and my mum (a science researcher) is all like "Gurl... science is cool, but so tiring! Why can't you be a normal teen and want to be a lawyer or whatever..." (btw not meant to degrade lawyersWink/Razz )

Number 9: Dr Kezzi-Rose and her discovery of fossils shaped like sex toys, an huge leap froward in the way that human beings regarded the serious study of little dead things xD

Seriously though, awesome badge and a great list of Kick-Ass Ladies of Science! :D

Wow. Female scientists. So rare. How unique. (Sarcasm)
I am sorry, but female scientists ain't uncommon. There are just as many female ones, plus they are equally good.

I know we aren't uncommon, but the scientific community is historically a sexist field to work in: I highlighted a handful of great scientists that people don't really hear that much about, or who had their work ignored at the time, because of their gender. Of course they're equally as good as men: but they're not equally regarded, that's the problem. To level the playing field, you gotta celebrate the undercelebrated c:

And it's still a sexist field to work in: women have more graduate degrees than men in neuroscience, for example, yet women make up less than a third of neuroscience faculty because of employment bias. This bias against women is scientifically proven, and so is harassment and sexual assault towards female science colleagues. This institutionalised issue still needs to be addressed, and one of the ways to do that is to promote respect for women working in science.

Thats why I at first thought the stamp was unnecessary. You know, like those girl gamers who make out they are so rare XD sorry if I missed something in the desc about it all, I have a bad habit of speed reading :(

Kezzi-Rose Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I see what you mean - to me it's way less about being 'ooh look we're so rare and special', more about the fact females in certain communities are under-respected, so making a point about it can help bring encouragement and respect c: Same with the gaming community really - being a girl playing online with mostly guys, you become the target of a lot of unwanted comments and general disrespect. It's important in scenarios like that for females to have each others' backs and be proud of doing what they love despite what they come up against! c:
And that's totally ok :love:

Little-rolling-bean Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
That can be true that guys will disrespect a girl gamer. Of course, they can easily be trolls. Then there are guys who refuse to play the game properly (where he is supposed to kill the opponent) because the opponent is girl, so he stereotypes her to be a weak gamer. Sad fact is, some girls do support that (I hear some say that killing a girl gamer in a shooting game is like raping her. Just wtf.) 

I just think we should treat them normally. None of this "I am special gurll gamerr", none of this going easy on a girl gamer, pervish remarks on chatrooms, etc. Just gamers.

..No? Although I'm a feminist too, obviously :dummy:

Feminists aren't making issues, they're pointing them out. The achievements of female scientists being undercelebrated is/was an issue created by a male-centric society.
