In Gale Biography, you can create a "Person Search" (in the upper right toolbar for women with the occupation scientist.  You can also narrow the search be selecting specific types of science, like computer scientist or environmental scientist.  As a nod to Pride month, you can add LGBTQ+ to any person search.

Person searches can be limited by LGBTQ plus in addition to gender, ethnicity, nationality and occupation.
