Great Women in Physics!

Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics recently released this list!

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
