LEDERMANN, Walter. A tribute to the gender: Devoted wives of intrepid investigators. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2015, vol.32, n.6, pp.697-702. ISSN 0716-1018.

Starting from the unfortunate words of Nobel Prize Tim Hunt about the presence of women in laboratories, we remember the stories of some devoted wives of intrepid investigators. Surely, more of someone, like Fanny Eilshemius or Mary Elizabeth Steele, never received the merited acknowledgement, working side by side with her husband in the house and in the lab; in a better stage, another one investigated as well as him, in the same or in a different field, like Mary Ethel Hayter Reed or Rebecca Craighill; and, finally and undoubtedly, most of them, being only simple housekeepers, like Emilie de La Salle, Win Warren or Adrienne Marshall, gave moral and kindly support to their men or... making an awful exception, betrayed these bored genius running away with an artist, with or without justification.

Palabras clave : Fanny Eilshemius; Mary Elizabeth Steele; Rebecca Craighill; Mary Ethel Hayter Reed; Emilie de La Salle; Win Warren; Adrienne Marshall.
