Maria Goeppert Mayer faced prejudice as a woman throughout her career. Despite her groundbreaking work in mathematics and landmark publications, she was constantly denied positions and salary. She eventually worked on the development of the atomic bomb, and later developed a model of the atom that revolutionized atomic theory and earned her a share of the Nobel Prize in Physics.
