All of her work not just the two years at Kings. Further, the author suggests that placing her on a pedestal as representing all women suffering unfair employment in the sciences is not helping women still struggling with unequal treatment.
Recognition and fair treatment is desirable but not excessive adulation. Maddox qualifies the imbalanced biographic work previously published. Since I am in the field of molecular biology I have seen the results of unfair bias and the strangled careers women experience even in the current era.
So much subtle discouragment is still present in actions despite the training and management seminars. We still need time to find a balance so there is greater evenness in opportunities. I can remember thinking when reading "The Double Helix" that this is how it still is to be a women in the labs.
This meant I was automatically discounting the personal commentary about Rosalind because I'd already heard similar or worse about my coworkers or myself.

In overhearing the men discuss their blond, statuesque co-conference attendee in terms of being a 'Science Barbie' and less mentionable terms with implications of her purpose being glass ware adornment not the papers she authored. Similarly the women who did not dress to suit where hairy legged female gorillas. This was not something I ever encountered in discussions of male colleagues by either sex.
So when Watson disparaged Rosalind I automatically adjusted the content to ignore the belittlement and came away with the simple message that he stole another persons work. That he felt justified at the time because he was in competition with Pauling to get the work first and none of the Kings people were willing to rush things.
I will not belittle the leap the Cavendish team made to see the entire related form and function. In fact, as a group, they did what Kekule did in envisioning the carbon ring, see the gestalt.
A brilliant physicist, she worked for the British government, doing original and important work on the nature of different coals, using x ray crystallographic techniques. After the second world war, she spent several years in Paris directing research using x rays to study coal and other solids.
Gaining a strong scientific reputation, she was invited to King's College in London to work with Maurice Wilkins to use the new techniques of x ray crystallography to define large biological molecules such as the RNA of the tobacco mosaic virus and DNA.
Her painstaking and precise work created several images of DNA that proved that it had a helical structure. Not receiving credit or acknowledgment for her contributions, she continued to work on the structure of RNA viruses, establishing important insights until her death from ovarian cancer aged Four years later Watson, Crick, and Wilkins received the Nobel prize, failing to acknowledge her contributions.
This biography describes the world of the burgeoning biological research fields of the late s and s—the collegiality, the conferences, the networks of friends, lovers, mentors and students, the competitiveness, and the search for funding that all made up the world of science and that are all reminiscent of research today.No more than that.
Must one be a good team player to be a good scientist? Maddox qualifies the imbalanced biographic work previously published.
The prior work of Avery and Chargaff is, now, well noted in books as being the information basis built on but the Cavendish team did put together the pieces synergistically. Shelves: biography A balanced and complete review of the life of a woman who has been ignored, maligned, or offered sycophant worship for her role in the early nucleic acid research.
The prior work of Avery and Chargaff is, now, well noted in books as being the information basis built on but the Cavendish team did put together the pieces synergistically.
Brenda Maddox, in her biography, attempts to present a balanced portrait of Franklin and of the assorted giant male egos with whom she came into contact. Her painstaking and precise work created several images of DNA that proved that it had a helical structure.
