  1. Bravo! I hope these letters will expose her as a statistician whose pioneering use of pie charts and histograms changed the nursing profession. Although she was at odds with the feminists of her time, her perspective has a lot to offer the 21st century. Finally, being the pious woman that she was, I hope her letters will thoroughly mess with the stereotypes we have of women in STEM fields.
