Regarding POWER GIRL’s costume…
(Thanks Liz.)

We now have a face to put to the screen names that tell us to just accept that sex sells and not complain about boob windows or other bingo card squares.

(February 28, 1979) From left to right are Shannon W. Lucid, Margaret Rhea Seddon, Kathryn D. Sullivan, Judith A. Resnik, Anna L. Fisher, and Sally K. Ride. NASA selected all six women as their first female astronaut candidates in January 1978, allowing them to enroll in a training program that they completed in August 1979.

Emma Perry Carr (1880-1972) (by Smithsonian Institution)
After earning her Ph.D. at the University of Chicago, Emma Perry Carr (1880-1972) taught in the department of chemistry at Mount Holyoke College until becoming professor emeritus in 1946. A pioneer in work on simple unsaturated hydrocarbons and on absorption spectra, Carr received the American Chemical Society’s Francis P. Garvan Medal in 1937.

Mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani is the first woman and first Iranian to be awarded the Fields Medal!

The Fields Medal is one of the highest honors granted in math. Every four years the medal is awarded at the International Congress of the International Mathematical Union to two, three, or four mathematicians under the age of 40. Along with the Abel Prize, it is considered “the mathematician’s Nobel Prize.”

Mirzakhani’s work focuses on Riemann surfaces and their moduli spaces and connecting aspects of differential geometry, complex analysis, and dynamical systems. Currently she is working on developing the understanding of billiards and translation surfaces with fellow mathematician Alex Wright. A fantastic overview of her life can be found in this article.

The Fields Medal was also awarded to Artur Avila (dynamical systems), Manjul Bhargava (number theory), and Martin Hairer (stochastic differential equations).

A 13-year-old girl from the US has invented a programme which encourages cyber bullies to think twice before posting offensive comments online. Trisha Prabhu’s Rethink project has already earned her a place as one of Google’s 15 Global Science Fair finalists. She said that the device was inspired by the realisation that teenagers are more impulsive than adults. Girl, 13, Shorlisted For Google Science Prize For Anti-Bullying Software

15 Year Old Canadian Invents Flashlight Powered by Your Hand
Another reason to be proud to be Canadian today!
treehugger:

Portable light sources have been one of the most evolving inventions in history — from the primative torches and oil lamps of yesteryear, to today’s battery-powered flashlights and headlamps. But through it all, most of these illuminating tools have required an outside energy source that would deplete when needed the most.
But now, thanks to one particularly enlightened 15-year-old girl from Canada, your next flashlight just might be powered by the heat from your hand. Introducing, the thermoelectric ‘Hollow Flashlight’ — submitted for the Google Science Fair.

These are my two daughters, Adeline & Emmie, showing their love for Spider-“Girl” and Wolverine. These were the dress-up outfits of the day, but it tends to switch up often between these and Superman and Batman.

May they be forever alone for their elitist douche-baggery.

I was recently interviewing the woman who founded Her Universe and we were talking specifically about women and geekdom. I asked about the rise of girls in geek culture and she very accurately corrected me: There is no “rise” of geek girls. We’ve always been here. Girls are just as nerdy as dudes are. Ladies have always been interested in sci fi and fantasy and video games - we just don’t talk about it a lot because men are assholes. 

yes.

What were your inspirations, especially since [Tauriel] is a completely created character; what brought you to bring that power because there were a lot of ways you could have played that role that would have been along the lines of what we usually see for a girl in an action movie where she’s not in the adventure, she’s the prize…?
