Ban Bossy: http://banbossy.com/

When a little boy asserts himself, he’s called a “leader.” Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded “bossy.” Words like bossy send a message: don’t raise your hand or speak up. By middle school, girls are less interested in leading than boys—a trend that continues into adulthood. Together we can encourage girls to lead.

This is an interesting storify trying to get names of women in science. There’s a google doc that might be of interest to ALD (though I haven’t looked at it yet). #BeyondMarieCurie
