Today's episode celebrates the contributions women have made to chemistry, particularly lesser-known figures whose work was integral to the field. We start with the story of British crystallographer Dorothy Hodgkin. Next, executive producer Jennifer Dionisio is introduced to the women in CHF's museum who have left a lasting impact on the history of science.
