Recently, I was fortunate enough to attend a talk given by Dr. Laura Hoopes.  She has recently published a book called “Breaking through the spiral ceiling” and gave both readings from it and a brief history of just how far female scientists have come in the last 50 years.  It was interesting to be reminded that up until the middle of the last century science was the dominion of white males.  There was the occasional non-white male, Ernest Everett Just is a key example.
