Chien-Shiung Wu

Pioneering Physicist and Atomic Researcher

Women Hall of Famers in Mathematics and Science

Chien-Shiung Wu overcame tremendous discrimination and hardship in her lifetime. As a female child in China, it was difficult for her to get a proper education, so at the age of twenty-four, she moved to the United States to study physics. She eventually became an authority in her field, well known for her findings in her study of physics, and specifically her work as an atomic researcher.
