March 8 is International Women’s Day. Over the years, I’ve made a number of graphics highlighting important women in chemistry history. But highlighting and supporting women in chemistry isn’t just about pointing to historical figureheads. So, this year, I wanted to create something that instead focused on women working in chemistry here and now.
The result is an ongoing series of cards, featuring a wide range of women in chemistry in various roles. To create these cards, I put out an open invitation for those who wanted to be featured to submit their details, so I’m very grateful to everyone who did so and was willing to be a part of this project. You can view the full set of cards on the dedicated page here.
In total, there were 181 submissions, so I plan to continue to add to this series over the coming weeks and months!
