50 women who changed the world, a list of 50 women who have had a significant impact on the world. Some I agree with others I don't. It is interesting that we have to have such a list at all, should it not simply be people who changed the world?
There is, from my perception, a glaring omission from this list. Rosalind Franklin was instrumental to the discovery of DNA structure, her X-ray diffraction images leading to the correct interpretation of the structure, although acknowledgement of this was not made at the time. The discovery of DNA structure has revolutionised biological science and our understanding of how our cells work.
Skeptical kinkster musing on whatever takes my fancy!
