In 1886, the Harvard Observatory hired a team of women known as the ‘Harvard Computers.’ According to legend, the director was fed up with his male workers and said his maid could do a better job, so he hired her, along with other women, so he could pay them at a lower wage. They outperformed the men, had more precise calculations, invented new systems for classifying stars, and changed the face of astronomy. Source Source 2
