Complete the History Books: Women in STEM

"We have always been an equal part of the past. We just haven't been a part of history."                           -Gloria Steinem

This week, we're celebrating women leading the way in the STEM fields, so it's only natural that this version of Complete the History Books will share the unsung accomplishments of women in science, technology, engineering, and math.  

We'll try to fill in the pages of the past with women's stories that have been whited-out or left behind by popular history books. For example, did you know that the world's first electronic computer, the ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer), was programmed by women? Or that Watson and Crick were not solely responsible for discovering the DNA double helix structure and an incredible female scientist laid the groundwork for them?
