The Eight Australian Women Who Are Shaking Up The World Of Science

10 January

Society has come so far in the last century that it’s easy to forget that, less than a hundred years ago, women couldn’t vote, they couldn’t own property, and they couldn’t work certain jobs. While most of that’s changed, there are still a few career paths that still feel like they’re stuck in the Middle Ages.

One of those areas is the STEM field. Even with a huge push for more women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, women only make up around 16% of Australians working in STEMM.

But that 16% is fighting hard. We’ve put together a list to recognise and celebrate some of the greatest women in science today.

Here are 8 of the most impactful and famous Australian female scientists:

1. Emma Johnston

2. Elizabeth Blackburn

3. Marguerite Evans-Galea

4. Deborah Williamson

5. Belinda Liddell

6. Michelle Simmons

7. Nasim Amiralian

8. Dharmica Mistry
