Whewell’s Gazette

Your weekly digest of all the best of

Internet history of science, technology and medicine

Editor in Chief: The Ghost of William Whewell

Cornelis Bloemaert

Year 3, Volume #11

Monday 31 October 2016

EDITORIAL:

October closes out and November the season mists and mellow fruitfulness slips into its place bringing with it the latest edition of Whewell’s Gazette the weekly #histSTM links list containing within it all of the histories of science, technology and medicine that we could scare up from the four corners of the Internet over the last seven days.

A couple of days ago the following tweet made the rounds on Twitter:

No women ever invented an atomic bomb, built a smoke stack, initiated a Holocaust, melted the polar ice caps or organized a school shooting – Michael Moore (@MMFlint)

And yes it is that Michael Moore, documentary filmmaker, Cannes Film Festival prize winner and self appointed left wing conscience of the US. Now you might well ask why we are featuring this tweet in our editorial this week. The answer to this question is very simple and is provided by one of the editorial principles of Whewell’s Gazette.

There are an increasing number of historians, sadly nearly all female (come on men get in on the act), who have dedicated themselves to increasing the profile of the role that women have played in the histories of STEM and continue to play in its present and future. Whewell’s Gazette has always supported these endeavours and so long as we exist will continue to do so. So what has this got to do with Michael Moore’s tweet?

In the real world little girls are not made of sugar and spice and all things nice and the women that they grow up into aren’t either. Women like men are capable of doing much that is good but also equally capable of much that is evil. Implying that no woman was involved in the bad things in this world Michael Moore is not doing them a favour but reducing them to some sort of half human fable creatures.

Two of the leading female physicists of the twentieth century, Marie Curie and Lise Meitner, both did work that was essential to the development of the atomic bomb and numerous women worked on the Manhattan Project, not only as secretaries but also as engineers and scientists. In civil engineering there have been and continue to be many female architects and engineers and I’m certain that more than one of them has built a smoke stack. Although I can’t name a women who initiated a Holocaust many of the SS guards in the Nazi concentration camps were women and let us never forget Lynndie England notorious torturer of Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. There are also female executives running major fossil fuel companies, which contribute to the melting of the ice caps. On his last point I recommend that Mr Moore listens to the Boom Town Rats biggest hit, and the song that made them a world wide phenomenon, I Don’t Like Mondays, the true story Brenda Anne Spencer, who fired at children in a school playground at Grover Cleveland Elementary School in San Diego, California, US on 29 January 1979, killing two adults and injuring eight children and one police officer. (Info from Wikipedia)

Whilst it is true that more men tend to be involved in the production of evil in this world it is a mistake to pretend that women are some sort of innocent angels incapable of such things. If we truly want equality for women, and here at Whewell’s Gazette we do, then we have to accept and acknowledge both the good and the bad.
