Celebrate the Women of Science With These Beautiful Pieces of Art

It's International Women's Day, and along with celebrating the women who changed the history of physics and those working in science now, there are these amazing prints from Rachel Ignotofsky.


Ignotofsky's work is available on Instagram and for purchase as t-shirts and prints on etsy. She's finished seven of her planned total of fifty — Marie Curie above and Jane Goodall, Mary Anning, Patricia Bath, Grace Hopper, Valentina Tereshkova, and Rosalind Franklin below — Ignotofsky told Instagram:

I wanted to do my part and celebrate these women and their accomplishments and hopefully get a younger audience familiar with them. I think that a good way to fight gender bias is to show young girls and boys strong female role models.

A lot of these women are not very well known, even though their accomplishments have changed our world forever. I want my illustrations to help spark an interest in learning more about these women. I want young girls and boys to see that no matter who they are, despite their gender, they can accomplish anything.


Definitely check out the rest of Ignotofsky's science-themed art.

Best fact about Marie Curie: her journals and papers are still radioactive and dangerous to touch. Marie Curie was the original badass motherfucker.
