It’s been a hectic month, but I felt it was necessary to take a moment and reflect on what Women’s History Month means to me. I think about all the Asian women who have inspired me in some way, and as much as I would love to give an individual shout-out to all of them, this post would turn into a novel. Chien-Shiung Wu, also nicknamed “the Chinese Madame Curie”, was a Chinese-American physicist who made important contributions in the field of nuclear physics. She is best known for conducting the Wu experiment, which disproved the Law of Conservation of Parity and helped two of her male colleagues earn a Nobel Prize in Physics. However, she was not acknowledged for her contributions simply because she was a woman. Despite all the discrimination, Wu won several awards and honors throughout her career and was the first woman to serve as president of the American Physical Society.
