1. Name one woman who has ever invented/discovered anything on God's green Earth?
What did Marie Sklodowska Curie discover?— The Nobel Prize (@NobelPrize) March 6, 2019
In 1898 Marie Curie and her husband discovered two new radioactive elements: radium (named after the Latin word for ray) and polonium (named after Marie's home country, Poland). More information on Marie Curie: https://t.co/ZGVLpJOrH8 pic.twitter.com/VsxXLq9MC7
2. Okay, one Indian woman scientist then?
Asima Chatterjee was an Indian organic chemist who developed anti-epileptic drugs and anti-malarial drugs. She was the first woman to gain a Doctorate of Science from an Indian university in 1944, when she graduated from University of Calcutta.#STEMlegends #WomenInSTEM pic.twitter.com/GAf6cxYfFk— RAS Diversity (@RAS_Diversity) September 29, 2018
3. Okay, these might be exceptions. Women these days push open a door that reads 'pull'. They can't comprehend basic directions.
We got the very first photo of a black hole because of an amazing team led by MIT grad student Katie Bouman, who helped create the algorithm that made the image possible. ⚫️ Congratulations and THANK YOU, Katie! 💥 You’re an inspiration to so many people 💫 pic.twitter.com/F6WqguYhJt— Olivia Munn (@oliviamunn) April 11, 2019
4. Okay, a woman sat at home and discovered something. Big deal! In reality, women are too weak to take on actual missions.
5. Women can't handle important shit. This is just how things are. #SorryNotSorry.
The #womanoftheweek is Margaret Hamilton - a fierce woman who coined the term "software engineering", was the Director of the software engineering division at the MIT Intrumentation Library, and helped develop the software program on board the Apollo space program.

6. Women cannot handle money, they totally suck at it. They know how to spend it, for sure? But make use of it? Never!
Ritu Karidhal (Deputy Operations Director), Nandini Harinath (Deputy Operations Director), Anuradha TK (Geosat Programme Director) –— Minorities in STEM (@MinoritySTEM) July 31, 2018
These are the three Indian women who helped to send India's probe to Mars on a fraction of the budget of the US or European space budget. pic.twitter.com/tl1vF9ZwnZ
7. Astronomy? Women are only interested in astrology. Zodiacs are all they care about.
After becoming the first American to discover a comet and calculate its orbit, Maria Mitchell became the only widely recognized and respected female astronomer of her time. She spent her entire life advocating for women’s education: @massivesci https://t.co/6p3ZMQhNWL pic.twitter.com/WggoDOtj5z— Pacific Standard (@PacificStand) April 11, 2019
8. They are too busy posting 'deadly selfies'. How will they find a cure for deadly diseases?
“Eva Ramón Gallegos, a researcher from Mexico National Polytechnic Institute was able to completely eradicate the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) in 29 patients. This discovery prevents malignant neoplasm, the second cause of death among Mexican women.” https://t.co/pieMcPpMsR— Ava DuVernay (@ava) February 9, 2019
9. Name one woman NASA entrusted with responsibility. They have no real scope in science.
#Scientist of the Week! Nancy Roman, mother of the #Hubble telescope. She was recruited by @NASA to run the astronomy program (first person to run it, first woman at NASA to be in leadership). Her dedication is a major reason why the Hubble is a reality today #WomenInSTEM 1/2— Sarah Sheffield (@sarahlsheffield) January 30, 2019
10. Women are just too much. Their 'icy cold friend-zoning hearts' can't handle extreme conditions.
Aditi Pant,an oceanographer by profession and the first Indian woman to visit the icy continent Antarctica. She was a part of the third Indian expedition to Antarctica in 1983-84 and was honoured for her outstanding contribution to the Indian Antarctic programme @WomenScienceDay pic.twitter.com/EX4nLFIxXK— Anar Patel (@AnarJPatel) February 11, 2019
11. Don't even get me started on women in mathematics! They can be your ex, but can't find 'x'.
Iranian mathematician, late Maryam Mirzakhani, the only woman in history to ever win the fields Medal in mathematics. https://t.co/MyVmp1z6q8— Keyvan Kamooneh (@KeyvanKamooneh) April 10, 2019
12. Women in chemistry? Lol, God endowed them with Bio, let them deal with that.
13. Women should just take Humanities and learn Home Economics. Learning science is just a waste of time and their dad's money.
1. Shakuntala Devi who stunned the world with her precise mental arithmetic skills. She was literally a supercomputer and she broke barriers and set a record. #WomeninScience4SDGs @WomenScienceDay pic.twitter.com/gQEI2ICHpP— Anar Patel (@AnarJPatel) February 11, 2019
14. Women are born to be rescued. These damsels in distress can't save anyone.
Alice Ball was a chemist who developed an injectable herbal extract that was the most effective treatment for leprosy during the early 20th century. She was the first woman and first African American to receive a master's degree from the University of Hawaii. pic.twitter.com/EBL80Zcl8f— Marina Amaral (@marinamaral2) April 2, 2019
15. The only thing that women know about computers is which colour they are.
SCIENTIST SPOTLIGHT: Grace Hopper was an American computer scientist and US Navy rear admiral. One of the first programmers of the Harvard Mark I computer, she was a pioneer of computer programming who invented one of the first compiler related tools. #computerscience #Tower pic.twitter.com/xnoYWcGi42— Tower Fasteners (@TowerFasteners) April 10, 2019
16. Women are too busy finding a potential mate, who'll provide for them. They shouldn't occupy themselves with finding anything else.
Caroline Herschel was born on this day in 1750. Her mother deemed her too ugly to marry and relegated her to a domestic servant for the family. Instead, Caroline became the world's first professional woman astronomer, nearly dying for science https://t.co/rIw6swW8Fv— Maria Popova (@brainpicker) March 16, 2019
17. Women can't be sent to space, yo. Unless you want a meteor to hit the Earth.
June 1963, Cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova launched aboard the Soviet Union's Vostok 6 mission, become the first woman in space and the first to wear a mission patch! pic.twitter.com/pdBCIHVBhf— Geoff Barrett 🚀 (@GeoffdBarrett) April 8, 2019
18. Woman paleontologist? I wonder how they find time out to dig out stuff, when they in reality are busy digging up reasons to argue.
Great to see that Mary Anning is getting the attention that she deserves. This pioneering palaeontologist laid the foundations for this field. Read this profile to find out more: https://t.co/mhx3OpdrnI— The Royal Society (@royalsociety) March 19, 2019
And check out the @MaryAnningRocks campaign too#WomeninSTEM
19. Women can only be a mother or work. They can't juggle two things in life, let alone two responsibilities.
Cool fact of the day: Mauritius's first female president Ameenah Firdaus Gurib-Fakim is also a Muslim Scientist pic.twitter.com/5t6UErttfq— IslamSciFi (@IslamSciFi) August 5, 2016
20. Women can only give your cardiac arrests by stomping on your heart. What do they know about operating one?
How can we forget the contributions of 101-year-old Padmavibhushan Dr. SI Padmavati, who played a big role in setting up a cardiac clinic and cardiac cath lab in India as early as 1950s. #WomeninScience4SDGs @WomenScienceDay pic.twitter.com/41ZpsOLUqT— Anar Patel (@AnarJPatel) February 11, 2019
21. There is no discrimination in STEM against women, it's women who don't want to 'choose' this field.
Here's an end of the week pick me up! Read the story of how Twitter users came together to recognize the sole woman in a picture of thirty-eight scientists - the only person in the photograph to be captioned "not identified". https://t.co/HlFzjdvavh— Nobel Women (@NobelWomen) March 23, 2018
22. Physics was built by men. These women don't belong here. Let them sit in the kitchen.
https://t.co/SpTA3TTO85— Marco, Dr. Puntastic (@1Natsu01) October 1, 2018
"Physics was invented and built by men".
- Vera Rubin (materia oscura)
- Marie Curie (Nobel)
- Sandra Faber (Hubble)
- Jocelyn Bell (Pulsar)
- Rosalind Franklin (dna, rna)
- Hopper, Wilson, Germain, Meitner, etc.
Even #Sturmia is built by a woman.
Hence proved, women and STEM are polar opposites. Come on now, back to the kitchen, let men take charge.
