A Quote by Maria Mitchell on science and women

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"

Maria Mitchell (1818 - 1889)
