We will present the social reality and difficulties that the female pioneers of modern science had to face. Lise Meitner, Chien-Shiung Wu, Jocelyn Bell o Rosalind Franklin should be as well known names as Max Planck, Max Born, Robert Oppeheimer, James D.Watson o Francis Crick, however, they sound very unknown, even for a physics student. Lise Meitner was the one who discovered, understood and explained nuclear fission.; Chien-Shiung Wu proved parity violation; Jocelyn Bell measured the first Pulsar and Rosalind Franklin discovered the double helix of DNA. Without their contributions, science would not be at the same stage of development as it is today. Because of being females, these great scientists had to face extra difficulties and none of them was properly recognized. The lack of female role models is still nowadays a barrier between women and scientific career and therefore it is important to claim their contribution in history.
