Marie Meurdrac

  • On the other hand, I flattered myself that I am not the first woman to have had something published; that minds have no sex and that if the minds of women were cultivated like those of men, and if as much time and energy were used to instruct the minds of the former, they would equal those of the latter.

Marie Meurdrac, French chemist

(1610 - 1680)
