Happy Ada Lovelace Day!

What’s Ada Lovelace Day?  March 24, set as a day to blog about women and science and technology.  Just yesterday I listed a purse on Etsy that quite suits the occasion…

Purse featuring Irene Joliot-Curie

This purse features French chemist Irene Joliot-Curie (1897-1956).  Both her parents had Nobel Prizes–her mother Marie Curie had two.  Irene and her husband Frédéric Joliot-Curie shared the 1935 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, and both of their children became scientists as well.
