Women in science we admire

Bridget Holt

Bridget Holt nominated by Glenys Holt

This tiny scientist is my biggest inspiration.  Bridget inspires me to make our scientific world a place where her contribution to science will be all that defines her, not her gender. With an unchecked joy in her learning, six-year-old Bridget gives promise that the next generation of female scientists will be fiercer, brighter, and braver in their scientific exploration. These emerging scientists are so early on in their journeys that they have not faced the gender-bias still prevalent in STEM.  To them, there are no boundaries in science, just opportunities to learn, discoveries to make, and fun to be had.
