Well anytime you start an analysis in 1920 you should expect a lack of female scientists. It would have been unheard of 100 years ago

It appears you are not familiar with much history of the past century :-p there were countless scientists who were women, even many who contributed greatly to many different fields

I am sure that there were a few, especially compared to now. But I highly doubt that anyone in the 1920s was like wow there is 1 female scientist in the entire state, I need to make sure when I have this future movie I show women as the lead scientist. Maybe starting 40s-50s it was much more common (again compared to the 1920s, but still minuscule vs now)
