Filling the Gaps in Women’s Science History
Author : Aura Staff

Far away from India, 33-year old Jessica Wade, a physicist, is filling the gaps of history by writing over 1750 Wikipedia pages for women and minority scientists who would otherwise be forgotten.

She said that “Not only do we not have enough women in science, but we aren’t doing enough to celebrate the ones we have.” She has written pages for many forgotten scientific heroes including Clarice Phelps, the first African-American woman to help discover a new element.
