Excellent exhibition on "Extraordinary Women in Science & Medicine: Four Centuries of Achievement," at New York City's Grolier Club.
Among those included are
Marie and her daughter Irene Curie,
Italian Jewish neurologist Rita Levi-Montalcini, and
British Jewish scientists, Hertha Marks Ayrton and Rosalind Franklin.
Hertha Ayrton, deeply involved with the suffragist movement and stepmother to Israel Zangwill's wife Edith, refused to participate in the 1911 census and wrote across the census form, as here noted in the exhibition: "How can I answer all these questions if I have not the intelligence to vote between two candidates for parliament? I will not supply these particulars until I have my rights as a citizen. Votes for women. Hertha Ayrton."
