Female scientists have made some incredible contributions to our world, but to this day, they still get harassed by their male colleagues. While that's simply not cool, Emily Temple-Wood's reaction to the harassment is pretty awesome.
Rather than letting herself sit around and get frustrated, she has dedicated herself to uploading a new Wikipedia article about a female scientist every time she gets an inappropriate email, some form of physical contact or any other unwanted attention from a male co-worker. She's been adding entries since 2012 and has since added hundreds of articles on feminine scientists from all backgrounds. While it would be nice if Ms. Temple-Wood went through her career without sexist comments, at least something great is coming from it.
