Past Harvard president Lawrence Summers created a furor
one time when he implied that science was not
a field for females.
Do we have Deaf Female Scientists? Yes, the book
“Deaf Persons in the Arts and Sciences”, coauthored by
Harry G Lang and Bonnie Meath-Lang, has profiled a good
number of deaf females in science. Some of them were the
best in their fields, not just beating out hearing male
colleagues, but also hearing female colleagues.
This is not all – on the faculty at Gallaudet
University is Caroline Miller Solomon who teaches
Biology, and has her own doctorate.
Not just only she is deaf but is also a graduate
of Lawrence Summers’ very own Harvard University!
