Williamina Fleming

“While we cannot maintain that in everything woman is man’s equal, yet in many things her patience, perseverance and method make her his superior. Therefore, let us hope that in astronomy, which now affords a large field for women’s work and skill, she may, as has been the case in several other sciences, at least prove herself his equal.” Williamina Paton Stevens Fleming: From Housekeeper to Astronomer 1857-1911
