And yet, it seems that women are not often included in this list. There has been many outstanding individuals, but their achievements and contributions were often overlooked or underestimated, and they remained but a faded imprint in the yellowed pages of a history book. Their names were often forgotten, or mentioned in passing, overshadowed by their male counterparts.
Even the great woman scientist Marie Curie was not totally free from gender discrimination during her time.Although she is now revered as the discoverer of radium, she used to be viewed as a mere helper of her husband, Pierre Curie.
