"But seriously, what have women even accomplished anyway?"
Awesome women being awesome :)
(I hope that’s legible) (source)
Ada Lovelace: The first computer programmer.
Mary Shelley: The creator of science fiction.
Madeline Albright: The first woman to become Secretary of State of the United States.
Janet Reno: First woman to become Attorney General of the United States.
And here’s a whole list of women who have been elected or appointed to lead their countries.
WHY DOES THIS LIST NOT MENTION MY FAVORITE HISTORICAL CRUSH, ROSALIND FRANKLIN? HM?
SHE DISCOVERED FUCKING DNA, AND HAD HER WORK STOLEN BY 2 DOUCHEBROS AND NEVER GOT ACKNOWLEDGED FOR HER YEARS AND YEARS OF LABOR.
SHE IS MY PERSONAL HERO.
(Marie Curie was pretty HBIC too. SCIENCE CHICAS FTW.)
Uhm, excuse me? You’re forgetting a lot.
Retired US Navy Captain Kathryn D. Sullivan was the first American woman to walk in space. She holds a PhD in geology, and also:
served as President and CEO of the COSI Columbus, an interactive science center in Columbus, Ohio and as Director for Ohio State University's Battelle Center for Mathematics and Science Education Policy as well as a volunteer science advisor to COSI. She was appointed to the National Science Board by President Bush in 2004.
More recently, she was appointed by US President Barack Obama to serve as assistant secretary of commerce for environmental observation and prediction and deputy administrator for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Oh, and LET’S NOT FORGET THE ONE WHOSE FUCKING BIRTHDAY IT IS.
Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906 – January 1, 1992) was an American computer scientist and United States Navy rear admiral. A pioneer in the field, she was one of the first programmers of the Harvard Mark I computer, and developed the first compiler for a computer programming language. She conceptualized the idea of machine-independent programming languages, which led to the development of COBOL, one of the first modern programming languages. She is credited with popularizing the term “debugging" for fixing computer glitches (inspired by an actual moth removed from the computer). Owing to the breadth of her accomplishments and her naval rank, she is sometimes referred to as “Amazing Grace”. The U.S. Navy destroyer USS Hopper (DDG-70) is named for her, as was the Cray XE6 "Hopper" supercomputer at NERSC.
