In honor of Women's Month, the Canadian Perimeter Institute of Theoretical Physics released an historical list of great women in Physics. I wanted to highlight some the older ones.
From Perimeter Institute of Theoretical Physics: "They discovered pulsars, found the first evidence of dark matter, pioneered mathematics, radioactivity, nuclear fission, elasticity, and computer programming, and have even stopped light."
I started to love physics when I had a terrific teacher in High School. Who would ever thought girls would like Physics; well I did; in face many girls and women did and this past month a list of leading women in Physics was released; their stories are not just interesting, they are inspiring; women fighting for a place in time
These women made historic discoveries; they also overcame discrimination and made the world a better place by their courage and strength.
Learning from them, it is critical to stay focused on one area in order to make historic progress; they spent years on it
