A tip o' the birthday hat

There's a wonderful calendar that someone has put together listing the birthdays of a huge number of female scientists. It certainly highlights my ignorance of the contributions of female scientists. Ethel Wood Shakespeare, Florence Bascomb, Stephanie Kwolek--who ARE these people?

Only one way to find out!

Every day with a female scientist listed, I'm going to try and blog a few things about that person. See what kind of dirt I can dig up. At least learn something in the meantime. Enjoy!
