Women in Science postcard set

Does anyone have a full list of female scientists which are featured in this set? (https://www.rachelignotofskydesign.com/women-in-science)

I hope to collect all one day, but it’s hard to track the progress. For Good night stories for Rebel girls I found the whole list almost immediately, but not for this one.

Also I’m wondering are there more postcards sets about women of the same style, which I don’t know yet :thinking:


Rad American Women A-Z Postcards is quite popular. I saw these cards many times in postcrossing home page under recent postcards gallery.

Brave. Black. First.

Fantastically Great Women


Give me a minute, I have a complete list saved somewhere, I’ll post it as soon as I find it.

Thank you! The third one seems exactly in my wishlist! Other two less, but also very interesting ^^

On unrelated note: I always see Valentina Tereshkova in these sets, first female astraunaut/cosmonaut and all, but knowing whole story - controversal, like because of some her behaviour Korolev forbid any other women in space, I’m interested about full story about other women in these set, not only the bright side

I was counting on that someone did it already :laughing:

@Xute - I clicked on your link above and there is a RESOURCE box on the lower right side. Click that and it brings up the entire list along with websites regarding each woman. There may be some video also.

Thank you, that’s very useful advice, I feel like I haven’t researched enough (I guess this list covers all women, not only from postcards, from her book too: https://www.rachelignotofskydesign.com/women-in-science-resources), I guess that would be safe to assume that most of them appear on the postcards

You’re a saviour! Thank you))

I took the names from the artists page as well! I once needed those for something, so I saved you the trouble of writting them unto a list.
