Show Notes

Have you ever asked yourself who were the first women that had the courage to go against society's expectations and pursue "unfeminine" careers such as engineering?  (the only answer accepted here is "yes", sorry).

Then you might be interested in finding out more about one of the first womn engineer, Eliza Leonida-Zamfirescu, a courageous woman who chose science in a time when following such interests were unheard of and frowned upon. She wasn't only gifted with a sharp mind and curiosity, but also with a kind and tender heart that determined her to serve as a nurse in WWI for her country and later on to donate her retirement money. Techniques and chemical synthesis methods developed by her are still valuable to this day, more than a hundred years later.
