Notable Women in the Physical Sciences: A Biographical Dictionary

By Benjamin F. Shearer; Barbara S. Shearer | Go to book overview

Hall of Fame; and in 1991, she was the first woman elected to the Ohio Science and Technology Hall of Fame. She states that working hard and rising to the top management ranks of a national corporation had many rewards. "My career has been challenging and exciting. Chemistry is fun because I could channel my inherent curiosity about everything into research plans and objectives aimed at discovery and innovation, hoping to provide products or processes that could benefit mankind." 4 However, she also recognizes that it has always been difficult for women who want a career and a family. This led Grasselli to champion recognition and support for women in the workplace. She was a defender of part-time work for women, equal salaries, and corporate child-care facilities long before they were national issues. She uses her life experience, broader perspective, and approach to problem solving to try to find sensible, socially constructive ways to integrate women into the workplace and into immensely rewarding careers in science and technology.
