Jackie Forster in 1978 Rex Features
Today’s Google Doodle celebrates Jackie Forster (1926-98) on what would have been her 91st birthday, a news reporter and actress who became one of Britain’s leading lesbian activists, a woman whose courage in coming out during less enlightened times made her a role model to thousands.

Born in Islington but raised largely in India where her colonel father was stationed with the British Army Medical Corps, Jackie was sent back to Britain in 1932 to attend Wycombe Abbey girl’s boarding school in Buckinghamshire and then St Leonard’s School in Fife, Scotland.

Asima Chatterjee, the Scientist Who Did So Much More in a Time of Less - The Wire

Let us remember Asima Chatterjee as a world-class chemist in a time when science was a lot less comfortable to do and involved a lot more of getting your hands dirty than it does today.

India’s most prestigious science award, the annual Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize, was first given in 1958, but it was only in 1960 that its ‘chemical sciences’ category was introduced. And it just took one year for the prize to go to its first female recipient, Asima Chatterjee, for her achievements in phytomedicine – the study of plant extracts for therapy. It was a long wait, about 14 years, before another woman would be awarded the same prize, and an astounding 48 years before a woman would win it for the ‘chemical sciences’ category again.

As much as the many barriers she broke should be celebrated, Chatterjee was a scientist and the best way of honouring her is to honour her science.

As Asish De has elucidated, being a natural products chemist in those days was no joke. While for centuries plants have been used for their medicinal properties, the biological mechanisms underpinning these plants’ effects was not known until chemists like Chatterjee began their work. They had the painful task of extracting minute amounts of active chemicals – the ingredients suspected to be responsible for the curative properties – present in these plants. Then, the molecular structures of these extracts would have to be determined. In the 1940s, when Chatterjee was conducting her research, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) machines and spectroscopic techniques that come to the aid of scientists who work on these problems today weren’t yet in the picture. So her work must have required amazing levels of precision and endless trial and error.
