Struggle of women for higher education
Higher education was denied for women in most countries mainly by the clergy till the beginning of the 20th century. Universities in most European countries were closed to female students. Few research centers accepted women researchers and similarly few university professors accepted women students. In spite of this many women chemists and physicists distinguished themselves in great discoveries and women got Nobel Prizes in physics and chemistry. Now, girl graduates from most colleges are twice the number of boys graduates.
