The Women Who Mapped The Universe

Over at the Smithsonian magazine site is an article called "The women Who mapped The Universe and still couldn't get any respect."

An interesting article, that again mentions Delaware own's Annie Jump Cannon.  It would appear from the article that the women who mapped the Universe and still couldn't get any respect, continue not to receive any respect as the article is mainly about Edward Charles Pickering.  Annie Jump Cannon is one of the few women named in the article.
