1. Your curiosity for the natural world inspires young women to get into the historically male-dominated STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Marie Curie would be proud.

6. In the tradition of Virginia Woolf and Sylvia Plath, yours is a mission to break down the literary glass ceiling, to fearlessly put pen to paper despite male onlookers questioning your authority or aesthetic choices.
