I am a huge fan of the show The Big Bang Theory. For those who are not familiar, it is a comedy about four scientists who are into video games, and comic books. They are socially awkward and are absolutely a disaster with women. At any rate, last night I had a small epiphany. The show is essentially about 4 male geeks, who with the exception of one person, all have a PhD. Well it turns out, that the only real scientist on the show is Mayim Bialik, who plays Amy Farrah Fowler. Dr. Balik earned her PhD in neuroscience.
For this week's question, I think it would be great to highlight women who are doing great work that do not get the attention or the recognition they deserve. Pick someone from any field and share why you think what she is doing is important.
