These 5 Women Deserved, And Were Unjustly Denied, A Nobel Prize In Physics
“The fact of the matter is that there is no concrete evidence that women are in any way inherently inferior to men when it comes to work in any of the sciences or any of their sub-fields.
But there is overwhelming evidence for misogyny, sexism, and institutional bias that hinders their careers and fails to recognize them for their outstanding achievements. When you think of the Nobel Laureates in Physics and wonder why there are so few women, make sure you remember Cecilia Payne, Chien-Shiung Wu, Vera Rubin, Jocelyn Bell-Burnell, and Lise Meitner.
The Nobel committee may have forgotten or overlooked their contributions until it was too late, but that doesn't mean we have to. In all the sciences, we want the best, brightest, most capable, and hardest workers this world has to offer. Looking back on history with accurate eyes only serves to demonstrate how valuable, and yet undervalued, women in science have been.”
In most intellectual lines of work, if you claimed that a certain type of person wasn’t mentally capable of doing as good a job as another, you’d be rightfully called a bigot. Yet somehow, in a myriad of the sciences (such as physics), there are those who simultaneously claim that “women are inferior to men” alongside the claim that it isn’t sexist or bigoted to say so.
But what there is a long history of, in physics, is women being denied their due credit for discoveries and advances that they were an integral part of. Even in the aftermath of last week’s events, when physicist Donna Strickland became just the third woman ever to be awarded a Nobel Prize, many have claimed that she isn’t worthy, for reasons that have never been applied to men.
Well, meet five women you might not be aware of who certainly earned a Nobel Prize, even if they were never awarded one. We cannot rewrite history, but we can right the legacy of its wrongs in our public consciousness.

Dissecting squash - what will we find inside?
While the grown-ups were curious about the seeds and density of various squash, the littles seemed most interested in digging at and painting the fruit. We all enjoyed watching the color spread as cells absorbed the dye!

We had the privilege of a visit from wilderness leader Josh Doyle last week. Josh led the group on a nature hike and demonstrated knot tying, bow making, fire starting and plant identification skills for the children.
Thank you, Josh, for sharing your knowledge and skills with Wood Sorrel Forest School! We look forward to more sessions in the future!
"Your abundance is not measured by what you have, it is created by what you share." Heidi Catherine Culbertson
It’s been a privilege to watch this little one grow and learn to love to share. This week he brought to school a special toy his grandma had brought back for him from a trip. Concerned that it may become an object of envy or conflict, as sharing personal items had been a challenge in the past, I encouraged him to leave it in his backpack so it wouldn’t get misused or lost. He looked at me, confused, and said “but I want to share with my friends”. Still doubtful I told him he could share during circle time. Later, during free play time, I saw him take it out and carefully show his friends how to use the toy then offering to each, “do you want to try?” as he held it out to them with generous abandon then waited patiently while they tried, failed, tried again and again. “Want me to show you?”
These seemingly basic social skills are actually developed through a lot of work and practice in a carefully cultivated environment of mutual respect - I felt very proud of this little one today as he demonstrated that with practice, sharing can become much more than a moral obligation
