Green Bee Botanicals Celebrates Women’s History Month: Marie Clark Taylor (1911 – December 1990) was an African-American botanist, the first woman to earn a science doctorate at Fordham University, and the Head of the Botany Department at Howard University from 1947 to her retirement in 1976. Her research interest was plant photomorphogenesis – how the amount of light affects plants.
Celebrating the Healers and Scientists of #Herstory
March is the National Women’s History Month. It recognizes and acknowledges the strides females have made in acceptance and equality. Green Bee wants to celebrate the scientists and healers whose shoulders our work stands on.
Saint Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179 CE) was a Christian mystic, Benedictine abbess, and polymath proficient in philosophy, musical composition, herbology, medieval literature, cosmology, medicine, biology, theology, and natural history.
She refused to be defined by the patriarchal hierarchy of the church and, although she abided by its strictures, pushed the established boundaries for women almost past their limits. (From @ahencyclopedia )
