In my view, all that is necessary for faith is the belief that by doing our best we shall succeed in our aims: the improvement of mankind.— Rosalind Franklin
Emotional Women In Science quotations
I think people who vibrate at the same frequency, vibrate toward each other. They call it, in science, sympathetic vibrations.
Science and everyday life cannot and should not be separated.
You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals.
Girls compete with each other. Women empower one another.
We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves.
Humans are allergic to change. They love to say, 'We've always done it this way.' I try to fight that. That's why I have a clock on my wall that runs counter-clockwise.

Though we do need more women to graduate with technical degrees, I always like to remind women that you don't need to have science or technology degrees to build a career in tech.
There are lots of opportunities out there for women to work in these fields, .
.. Girls just need support, encouragement and mentoring to follow through with the sciences.
We have to free the half of the human race, the women, so that they can help to free the other half.
It is shameful that there are so few women in science.
[...] In China there are many, many women in physics. There is a misconception in America that women scientists are all dowdy spinsters. This is the fault of men. In Chinese society, a woman is valued for what she is, and men encourage her to accomplishments yet she remains eternally feminine.
For whatever reason, I didn't succumb to the stereotype that science wasn't for girls. I got encouragement from my parents. I never ran into a teacher or a counselor who told me that science was for boys. A lot of my friends did.

How have you remained a one women man? "She is my best friend, would you want to hurt your best friend?
In my younger days, when I was painted by the half-educated, loose and inaccurate ways women had, I used to say, "How much women need exact science" But since I have known some workers in science, I have now said, "How much science needs women"
We need all hands on deck, and that means clearing hurdles for women and girls as they navigate careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.
I believe in the unlimited power of women in the context of science and engineering.
Quantum physics tells us that nothing that is observed is unaffected by the observer. That statement, from science, holds an enormous and powerful insight. It means that everyone sees a different truth, because everyone is creating what they see.
Women, you have all this power, I'm telling you.
In business, you have something called an inferred fiduciary duty to yourself. Look at the other hugely successful women in industry, commerce, science and everywhere else and you'll see women who are feminine, beautiful but also do not rely on men for their self-empowerment.
Successful women are not liked. I think the biggest danger for women in science is colleagues who are not as good as you are.
In mathematics and science, there is no difference in the intelligence of men and women. The difference in genes between men and women is simply the Y chromosome, which has nothing to do with intelligence.
What is now proved was once only imagined.
There are plenty of images of women in science fiction. There are hardly any women.
The well-educated young woman of 1950 will blend art and sciences in a way we do not dream of; the science will steady the art andthe art will give charm to the science. This young woman will marry--yes, indeed, but she will take her pick of men, who will by that time have begun to realize what sort of men it behooves them to be.
I believe sanity and realism can be restored to the teaching of Mathematical Statistics most easily and directly by entrusting such teaching largely to men and women who have had personal experience of research in the Natural Sciences.
Respect for women is one of the greatest gifts a father can show to a son.
It has never been in my power to study anything, mathematics, ethics, metaphysics, gravitation, thermodynamics, optics, chemistry, comparative anatomy, astronomy, psychology, phonetics, economics, the history of science, whist, men and women, wine, metrology, except as a study of semeiotic .
The scientific mind is atrophied, and suffers under inherited cerebral weakness, when it comes in contact with the eternal woman--Astarte, Isis, Demeter, Aphrodite, and the last and greatest deity of all, the Virgin.
Social science affirms that a woman's place in society marks the level of civilization.
Decisiveness is a characteristic of high-performing men and women. Almost any decision is better than no decision at all.
patriarchal academic hierarchies in science and technology are now overspecialized and abstract, perhaps because they have systematically excluded women, as well as minorities, with challenging, alternative views.
Ultimately, the main reason that you want more women in the sciences is the same reason you want more gay men in the sciences. It's the same reason you want more Latinos or African Americans; it's because if you come at a problem from a different perspective, you will be offering a creative vision that wasn't there before.
Sophie Germain proved to the world that even a woman can accomplish something in the most rigorous and abstract of sciences and for that reason would well have deserved an honorary degree.
The abuse of women and girls is the most pervasive
In Poland, my audience is all women between 18 and 30.
At U.S. conventions, you have the fantasy and science fiction crowd. At Harvard you have an entirely different audience. It's so schizophrenic.

Men and women belong to different species, and communication between them is a science still in its infancy.
Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the Titanic who waved off the dessert cart.
It is clear that we cannot go up another two orders of magnitude as we have climbed the last five.

Art and science coincide insofar as both aim to improve the lives of men and women. The latter normally concerns itself with profit, the former with pleasure. In the coming age, art will fashion our entertainment out of new means of productivity in ways that will simultaneously enhance our profit and maximize our pleasure.
