Women in Science

I'm reluctant to call myself a scientist, just yet. But I suppose that's what I am. I also suppose I could be classed as a woman in science.

You probably know as well as I do that science isn't really a subject that women are immediately associated with but take a little butchers at this; L'Oreal's spotlight on Women in Science.

It showcases women's contribution to science over the years, going as far back as Roman Egypt in the 300's! And includes scientists like Jocelyn Bell, Marie Curie, Florence Nightingale and Nancy Rothwell - the Deputy President and Deputy Vice Chancellor at my university; The University of Manchester.
