    Instead of linking a clickbait list, I would have liked if you just have given us the list 😉

    What strikes is that 7 women on the lsit are from the USA
    One each from CAnada, the United Kingdom and Kenya.

    It is save to assume that Wanagri Maathi is not forgotten in Africa as a whole and not in Kenya specifically.

    Marie Stopes is certainly not forgotten in UK.
    In UK they provide contraception, abortions, promote sexual health etc.
    I believe they have a charitable arm which helps Irish girls get to UK for abortions.

    Probably a better Mathematician than nurse or social reformer.

    Also she is not forgotten as she has passed into mythology as your post demonstrates.

    mathematician or Economist? She sure could do the numbers, but she probably added not much to the methods, did she?
