An amazing woman -- Wang Zhenyi!
In this article in April Magazine, we can learn of her achievements: Born in 1768 in a family with educated scholars and lots of books, Wang Zhenyi transcended the barriers for female education and became an astronomer and mathematician, and one of the greatest scientists in Chinese history. She applied her calculations skills to celestial movement and also to books that made calculations simple for beginners. Her short life ended at age 29.
Beyond her scientific achievements, Wang Zhenyi also was a poet; in their profiles of this outstanding scientist (There's a crater on Venus named for her!) both April Magazine and Wikipedia give sample stanzas; here is one:It’s made to believe,
Women are the same as Men;
Are you not convinced,
Daughters can also be heroic?
And here, in The Folding Chair is still more about Wang Zhenyi (and about other women "who weren't given a seat at the table.")
