Well, can't say I'm surprised.
International Women's Day was huge this year. No doubt your feed was full to the brim with amazing messages to and from brilliant women.
Of course, International Women's Day did have some curiosities. For example, can anyone explain Snapchat's "special" Women's Day filter?
Shoutout to the smokey eye on that Marie Curie Snapchat filter for giving me the confidence to demand equal pay. pic.twitter.com/Bo1YFePvH0— Kate (@katefordays) March 8, 2017
why does the marie curie sc filter have a full face of makeup??? lol didn't know that world renown physicists had false eyelashes— marissa (@mjohnson941) March 9, 2017
Madame Curie's life wasn't about having a smooth complexion or a smokey eye. Madame Curie was a two-time Nobel Prize-winning scientist and the first woman to actually win that honour.
She was known best for her pioneering work in the field of radioactivity and, notably, did not wear falsies to the lab.
THANK GOD the Marie Curie #intlwomensday Snap filter has eyeshadow&mascara! I almost thought u didnt need makeup to be a scientific genius— Emily Hooker (@ehookss) March 8, 2017
While we're huge makeup fans, this filter gets filed into the ever-growing collection of Snapchat "special" filter fails.
Someone even pointed out that the scientific structures shown in the filter have nothing to do with Madame Curie's specialty.
tell me why the marie curie sc filter has guanosine structures which are missing double bonds & also have nothing to do with her research— Angela Escobar (@angelaescodawg) March 8, 2017
