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: This is a more neutral-coloured version of my original more girly stamp below!
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.

Helping save people's lives means a whole lot to me, why I (Also) Decided to choose that field of Science.

No problem at all. :hug:
