Our Stories

For every scientist whose work has been recognized and celebrated, there are thousands who have been accidentally or purposefully forgotten.... The contribution of women across all areas of science is still largely overlooked. Our BWIS fellows are front runners in numerous disciplines indeed. We celebrate the many exceptional women who did not allow societal barriers stop them from pursuing their scientific passions. Celebrate these exceptional women with us!
