“It is not scientific proof of gender equality that is required, but general acceptance that women are at least the equals of men, or better," said Stephan Hawking in an interview last year. On Wednesday the world lost an amazing scientist and a wonderful human. He exemplified that scientists are humans and we must embrace all the difficulties and differences each one of us has. And that science is best when all are included on an equal platform.
