Astronomy. Biology. Physics. Research computing. Structural engineering. Chemical engineering. Women’s work? Absolutely! Though these fields historically have been considered to be for men, the women that we highlighted this past week as part of the 150 Days of Canadian Women in STEM initiative, are examples of just how significant the impact of women in these areas is. Two of the women braved the extremely gender biased world of science and engineering in the mid-2oth century and helped to open doors for the four others who are leading in science, computing, and engineering fields today. The profiles of these featured women show that when it comes to the STEM fields, women have long been making significant contributions, and are continuing to do so.
