Incredible, Brilliant Women Who Left a Mark on Science

With the current Trump administration, it's become increasingly clear to women all over the country how important is to make their voices heard. The Women's March, which took place in several cities and countries all over the world on Jan. 21, was only the beginning of that movement. Scientists are planning their own march on Washington, and the Women's March organizers are asking women to strike on March 8 (International Women's Day), calling it "A Day Without Woman." Whether you're striking or looking to find inspiration from past groundbreaking women, look no further than these female scientists who had to overcome various struggles and obstacles to achieve their dreams.

We're paying respect to Marie Curie and other women who left their mark on modern life through science. These women prove that physics, wireless technology, and computer programming aren't just traits of a boys' club and that science is the coolest subject of all.
