There are women in this world that need to be saluted because of their brains. A woman who has brains is a very attractive woman and a woman to watch out for. She is an empowered woman and not because of an office that she carries, but because of the smart brain, she has. It is so improper to think that the Sciences are mostly masculine subjects. Women have been very successful in scientific fields, and they have shocked the world with their achievements. When you find a successful woman in the scientific field, and she has a great sense of humor with a beautiful face, then you have a winner. I am talking about a woman like Mayim Bialik.
