Up to this time, many women capable of outstandingly original work have been forced to direct their ideas and their energy to the attaining and the keeping of any kind of opening in the field of science, to winning for themselves and others the right to do their special kind of work. But as I have said this situation is gradually being bettered and for this reason I believe we shall have more important and more original work from our young women scientists. 2
