Women in Science : Give Credit When Due

Celebrating Women's History Month.


There's a scripture that says we should "give credit where credit is due, and give honor to whom honor is due".  Don't know why, but it's easy to laud this principle and very difficult to apply it to real life situations. Anyway ... I don't think any of these women are bitter.  They probably consider that they were blessed to have the avenues and opportunities to use their talents and gifts for the greater good.  Women are like that.  Yeah they are!

Ever heard of any of these women? I hadn't until I came across these interesting BIO snapshots.

Interesting tidbit:
  • Emilie du Chatelet was named Gabrielle-Emilie; however, friends in her circle which included Voltaire {Francois-Marie Arouet (1694 - 1778), who later took the name of Voltaire} dropped Gabrielle and just called her Emilie. Her husband's name was the Marquis du Chastellet. But because Voltaire called her du Chatelet, everyone else did too!  [Click the embedded link her name above to read more.]

4 Things Women in Business are Told (that Men aren't) | Project Eve

Worked a 9 to 5 job for several years in the corporate workplace and don't remember being told this, Also don't remember being doggedly pursued to be offered a management position. If you're going to be an executive perhaps that's when this type of advice is volunteered. Volunteered? Yes. The "4 Things" don't seem like advice that any working woman would actually ask for. If these tips were offered to me, my responses would be:

  • To Thing #1: Uuuhhh ... WHY?
  • To Thing #2: Uuuhhh ... WHY?
  • To Thing #3: You're telling me that? WHY?
  • To Thing #4: Uuuhhh ... WHY?
