Introduction Women issues and challenges have been at the forefront of history throughout the United States but has affected women living in every country, continent, nation and territory known and unknown to man. How do women then benefit from the career investment and returns of the 21st Century Green Economy if there are constant barriers imposed to annihilate and separate them to the point of exclusion? According to (Cato 2009) in identifying limitations placed on women she discusses how this points to a system characterized by a patriarchy possessing the majority of the resources which are controlled by men. Most of the world's women are poor, existing in a male dominated economy which has resulted in a situation where women form 70 percent of the world's poor and own only 1 percent of the world's assets (Amnesty International). Image what women owned during the 1800's given that obstacles were more prevalent with women based on them not having education and voting rights. During the 1800's it was "medical men who spread wrong beliefs about women and learning and that learning would adversely affect women's mentally, physically, and emotionally" and then (Breton 1998) on the other hand has done some rather remarkable and exciting research on women pioneers in the environmental movement and captures "aha moments" of women who persisted against the odds to achieve breakthroughs in education, business, government and non- governmental organizations and movements. Much praise to be given her for such an impeccable work and the passion she exudes. One woman that she mentions in her book is Ellen Swallow who was coined the "first lady of environmental science." She is the first lady of environmental science who was also denied teaching positions and worked in laboratories with no pay and had exemplary analytical and research skills and was later honored by a professor who did not believe she needed an education at Massachusetts Institute of Technology after completing studies at Vassar. She was eventually accepted and her research work involved working on water and sewage projects for the Massachusetts Board of Health. She later was deemed worthy to receive an honorary doctorate.
