Babes of Science
About This Show
Women have contributed to the sciences for centuries, but not always in a way that fulfills the stereotypical role of a scientist or in a way that gets recognition. Babes of Science is about about women's work in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics throughout history.

Science History I'd never heard
Science history is never something I'd explored much...let alone the lives of women in the sciences. These women were facing the same things I have in my career and it's fun to hear their voices. Plus the stories are short!
