PARTING SHOT 

An advertising campaign for highlighter pens by Stabilo Boss is gaining online traction and widespread praise.

‘Highlight the Remarkable’ aims to highlight women who were influential in a world event and who were overlooked, forgotten about or just written out of history altogether.

It includes women women who made huge contributions to society but whose work was never acknowledged like Lise Meitner and Rosalind Franklin.

Lise Meitner’s male partner was awarded the Nobel Prize instead of her. The same thing happened to Rosalind Franklin whose research towards understanding the structure of DNA was never acknowledged at the time and only came to light much, much later. [TheDailyEdge]
