Putting Women Back in Science History, Erasing the 'Matthew Matilda' Effect

Women have always been left out of history, not because they didn't have anything to say, do, or contribute but mostly because they are being pushed into the traditional role of being a domestic shut-in.

But no more. The women's movement and all other efforts being made to ensure that women are able to contribute and be credited in their chosen fields have been gaining a lot of attention in recent times. Though there is still a long way to go.

At the very least, we could recognize the women who have made big contributions in the field of science in history. Other than Marie Curie and Ada Lovelace, other female scientists like Caroline Herschel, Lisa Meitner, and Hertha Ayrton deserve the commendation for their works.
