"In [The Double Helix, Watson] tells about how happy they were, he and Crick, that my husband was not allowed
to come because had he come, he would no doubt have seen these excellent photographs
that Rosalind Franklin made and had and which, when they saw them, with their other
data, they were able to work out the structure of DNA...[If] ever there was a woman
who was mistreated, it was Rosalind Franklin, and she didn't get the notice that she
should have gotten for her work on DNA."
