+Abdel Habib The point is that women were excluded from the sciences. BTW, your argument about teamwork is crap. Women are, in fact, very good team leaders and team members.

While thrift shopping in Richmond, Virginia a few weeks ago, photographer Meagan Abell came across four sets of medium-format neg...
