Get In The Christmas Spirit: Hang Some Lady Scientists On Your Tree


Eavesmade’s Heroes of Science have been around for at least a couple years now, but every year the holiday season runs around and something reminds me of them and then I get excited to know they exist. The Etsy seller puts together laser-etched images of famous scientists for the hanging on, oh, anything. And they’ve also got a set of Women in Science, which includes some incredible ladies.

The collection ranges through uncredited-co-discoverer of the structure of DNA Rosalind Franklin, double Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie, discoverer of tool use in animals Jane Goodall, chemist and conservationist Rachel Carson, first woman doctor in the US Elizabeth Blackwell, leading palaeoanthropologist of her time Mary Leakey, first African American woman to earn a PhD in Math in the US Euphemia Haynes, spy surgeon and first woman to earn the Medal of Honor Mary Edwards Walker, first woman in space Valentina Tereshkova, and crusading nurse Florence Nightingale.

If you’re the kind of person who likes your science in your celebration, these could be just the ticket, but with their simple design, you could really put them up any where, any time of the year. You can buy the whole set or individual ornaments, which is much closer to the concerns of my own budget.

    Does the Marie Curie ornament glow in the dark?

    Um…. Why would i hang scientists on a christmas tree? Better question, why would i only hang female scientists on a christmas tree? Isn’t that the definition of sexism?

    Thank you for the best laugh of my day.  :-)

    Lololol yes it’s “reverse sexism”, because men are so oppressed, especially heterosexual white men. We must make sure the menz are not offended.

    I think you clicked the wrong link somewhere and ended up at the wrong website. This is the Mary Sue, not ignorant-brodudes.com.

    sex·ism    (skszm) KEY 

    NOUN:1. Discrimination based on gender2. Attitudes, conditions, or behaviors that promote stereotyping of social roles based on gender.

    So it is infact sexism… How were women scientist baubles on trees oppressive prior to the creation of this product… Was there like a whole heap of different sets of male scientist christmas tree baubles that existed prior to this female scientist series of which i am unaware?
