These March for Science Posters Are Perfect for Women's History Month and Beyond
With the intention of bringing the momentum from the Women's March into March and beyond, Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya has created six customized posters to recognize the many powerful women in STEM.
Featuring the faces of various female scientists, including MAKERS Katherine Johnson and Mae Jemison, the posters can be downloaded for free and printed to use at the March for Science on April 22 (Earth Day).
Click through the gallery above for a glimpse at the incredible posters and to learn a bit about each of the featured faces.

Katherine Johnson "Katherine Johnson (one of the three black female mathematicians portrayed in the film "Hidden Figures") made calculations for NASA that were instrumental to America’s first manned spaceflight in 1960, the orbital mission of John Glenn in 1962, and the Apollo 11 lunar mission in 1969."

Mae Jemison "Mae Jemison was not only the first black woman to travel in space but also an accomplished engineer and physician. On September 12, 1992, she flew into space on the Shuttle Endeavour for mission STS-47." Photo Credit: Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya
Rosalind Franklin "Rosalind Franklin took a picture of DNA, Photo 51, that changed our understanding of the structure of DNA. Snubbed for the Nobel Prize in 1962, Her story is one of the most well-known and shameful instances of a researcher being robbed of credit. Let's celebrate her now."

Maryam Mirzakhani "Maryam Mirzakhani made history when she became both the first woman and the first Iranian honored with the Fields Medal, the most prestigious award in math. Her work influences material science, quantum theory, theoretical physics as it applies to the origin of the Universe." Photo Credit: Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya
Chien-Shiung Wu "Few have heard of Chien-Shiung Wu, also known as the "First Lady of Physics" She made history when she disproved the hypothetical law of conservation parity, a bedrock law of physics that many others were too afraid to test." Photo Credit: Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya
May-Britt Moser "May-Britt Moser, modern heroine, pioneered research on the brain's mechanism for representing space. She won the Nobel Prize in 2014 for her discovery of grid cells in the entorhinal cortex and several other space representing neurons that make up the positioning system of the brain."
