A collection of pioneers and revolutionaries in science, who were women, for International Women's Day. These women foresaw the potential of computer programming, set the scale of our universe, discovered the inner core of the Earth, were the preeminent mathematician of their time in Ptolemaic Egypt, discovered and explained nuclear fission, and discovered that the Weak force violates parity (the first discovery of 'symmetry breaking' in one of the fundamental forces of our universe).
