National Women’s History Week 4

Dating back to the 18th-century, women pursuing formal education had limited access to fields such as science that were viewed as male domains. For those women who were able to endure obstacles and contribute to scientific discoveries, their contributions were often omitted from public records and therefore accurate historical accounts. New educational opportunities opened for women less than 50 years ago, in1972, with the passage of a federal civil rights law, Title IX, as part of the Education Amendments making it illegal to bar women from federally funded schools or education programs. Together we can attract and retain female scientists by helping to ensure that women are included, recognized, and heard.
This week we celebrate Jane C. Wright, a pioneer in translational research to fight cancer. Read more here.
