A to Z Theme Reveal: Female Scientists Before Our Time
Hi. With all the news about science and the education of our youth in the news of late, gravitating toward a science theme for the A-Z Challenge was easy. I am not a scientist but there are plenty of scientists in my family.
I also read online that only "6.7% of women graduate with STEM degrees vs. 17% of men, meaning men are
2.5 times more likely to enter these high paying fields." Goodness, I would encourage both sexes to enter the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. We need more of you!
So being a historian at heart, especially when it comes to women's history, I have decided to explore female scientists, going back as far as I can to women in our ancient past and the Middle Ages.Nothing heavy mind you, and I promise to keep it interesting.
