Does this surprise any woman? Men have been doing it for centuries.

Add Rosalind Franklin, whose work gave Crick and the two Scumbags Watson and Wilkins the Nobel Prize and she got squat.

Appalling and I don't think much has changed. That Martin Ryle would stoop so low does surprise (and horrify) me. Why should someone who is a student who worked with 2 "recognised" scientists and made such a discovery as Jocelyn Bell Burnett did be denied a share of the Nobel Prize?

The Nobel Prize Committee needs seriously to look to the fraud and lies that they have continued to up hold. ALL of the PAST incorrectly awarded prizes need to be addressed and those found incorrect need to be withdrawn and re awarded, posthumously if necessary. If the fruads and lies are continued to be upheld it taints ALL of the awards given to every person who was not a fraud or cheat and totally diminishs any value & prestige the Prize holds

Men always want the credit, and push the woman aside. Truly sad how done men believe that we're inferior to them.

I was aware of Jocelyn Bell's and Hedy Lamarr's contributions, and knew that there were many women involved in research and development for the Manhattan Project, but I hadn't heard of the others... Sad, really.

Frank P. Rosalind Franklin died of cancer two years before the Nobel Prize was awarded. The Nobel is not awarded posthumously, but she definitely should have been mentioned.

After finding he was a fraud did he at least acknowledge his wife as painter.

Karen Douglas, I’m sure this is just a few of the many injustices women have suffered over the years
