    We live in a time, when few people concern of that, why is so few women in the science; although nowadays is coequality between men and women. We would not to forget the reality; that women could have to study on the universities only from the 19th century. That could be one of the reasons, why nowadays is so few women in science. Certainly, the other reason is the fact; that women in history didn´t signify more in the society. Their maximal success in their life was to perform the position of the mother and wife. Their role was the nascence children, so that the parentage would be well-preserved and would not threaten the decrease of population; and not last one reason was the care about the household. The resource to employ was the utopian soon. The man was the bread-winner. In 19th century were the women too, those attended the educational institutions, the private or the public too. They were the women; those had to perform the wife-position of some officer, higher positioned man, in the future. The thinkers of enlightenment performed the opinion, that women can´t study and to develop the science, because they are very emotional. This description belongs to antipoles in the science, those the scientists’ couldn´t have to know. The most important in the science is the rationality and the objectivity; and especially these descriptions have men better developed.
