Women in science: ”She was a great man”

06/05/2004, Emilie du Chatelet died after child birth in 1749 at the age of 43. She knew the dangers of a late pregnancy. No anti-biotics to control infection; nothing to control uterine bleeding. Doctors did not bother to wash their hands or instruments. But she stoically accepted her probable fate. She’d always worked long hours and now the candles at her writing desk often burned till dawn as she raced to complete her translation and commentary on Newton’s science.
Roy Farrar, Socialist Party, England and Wales
