The article highlights the contributions of a few prominent women scientists to the science of pharmacology. These women,some of whom were from other scientific fields, contributed significantly to our understanding of pharmacology. This was achieved in an era in which pharmacology was a more or less male dominated field. Even though it is easier for women to enter scientific fields nowadays, the mid-career attrition rate seems to be high. There is still a lot of scope for improving the work environment and attitudes of the society in their favor. Key-words: Pharmacology, women, scientists, physiology.
