Rachel Ignotofsky is an illustrator and designer living in KC with two passions: science and art. This series of drawings is the combination of her passions in a celebration of groundbreaking and often unheralded women in science.
“I wanted to do my part and celebrate these women and their accomplishments and hopefully get a younger audience familiar with them,” Rachel says. “I think that a good way to fight gender bias is to show young girls and boys strong female role models.”
“A lot of these women are not very well known, even though their accomplishments have changed our world forever,” she says. “I want my illustrations to help spark an interest in learning more about these women. I want young girls and boys to see that no matter who they are, despite their gender, they can accomplish anything.”
