Donna Strickland: Amazing Physicist, Amazing Canadian, Amazing Woman

Canadians, and women, have revelled in the accomplishment of the self-effacing Donna Strickland, who recently won the Nobel Prize for Physics. She is only the third woman to win the Physics prize in over a century and only the fifth Canadian ever.

Bravo Strickland!

Shame on University of Waterloo!

In the 21 years Strickland has worked there, the university has not seen fit to promote this Nobel-calibre physicist to full professor. Hmm. Could it be because she's female?
