Maria Mitchell, 1st Female Professional U.S. Astronomer, and Suffragist

Maria Mitchell, suffragist, and the first female U.S. professional astronomer. 100 years ago today, August 26, 1920, was when the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was finally certified and placed into law. In honor of that, here is a story on Maria Mitchell, suffragist, and the first female U.S. professional astronomer.

Maria Mitchell was Professor of Astronomy at Vassar College and discoverer of Miss Mitchell’s Comet. She also helped found, and was the second President of, the Association for the Advancement of Women. She was an early and strong advocate for education for girls and young women, particularly science and mathematics education.
