- Wu was also known as "First lady of Physics" and "Chinese Marie Curie"
- Chien Shiung Wu had 3 quotes:
- ... it is shameful that there are so few women in science... In China there are many, many women in physics. There is a misconception in America that women scientists are all dowdy spinsters. This is the fault of men. In Chinese society, a woman is valued for what she is, and men encourage her to accomplishments yet she remains eternally feminine. -Chien-Shiung Wu
- Beta decay was... like a dear old friend. There would always be a special place in my heart reserved especially for it. -Chien-Shiung Wu
- There is only one thing worse than coming home from the lab to a sink full of dirty dishes, and that is not going to the lab at all! -Chien Shiung Wu.
