Nettie Stevens did as much work, if not more than the men who were credited with the research. She actually found the XY chromosome, but because she was a women and women were not considered capable of being scientists at the time, she was not given credit for her contributions.

She was a pioneer for women in the field of science and made strides in areas where women were not even allowed to work at the time. Her work was significant and ground-breaking. I see no reason why she should not be credited with her findings.

It is a shame that a woman's contribution to science was marginalized in her own time. However, I think that there should be a formal recognition of her research by the scientific community. We now live in a world much different than that of Ms Stevens. Women are now lauded for their contributions to society on a daily basis.

Nettie Stevens was one of the first female scientists to make a name for herself in the biological sciences. She was born in Cavendish, Vermont. Her family settled in Westford, Massachusetts. Stevens' father was a carpenter and handyman. He did well enough to own quite a bit of Westford property, and could afford to send his children to school.
