This is about Mileva Maric, the only female to study physics at Polytechnic University in Zurich. Women at university just wasn't a thing back then. Her father had to petition to get her into the program. This is where she met Albert Einstein. We learn that it was her idea about the theory of relativity yet she didn't get credit for any of the collaborations she had with Albert. She should have been the one to win the Noble Peace Prize. She never got the acknowledgement for how much she contributed to his papers. He was a selfish man and I believe he was jealous of Mileva that she seemed to have been a better physicists than him. Too bad she wasn't born later when she probably would have received the acknowledgements she deserved. Marie Benedict does a great job of bringing these characters to life and shining a light on Mileva's life and her struggles.
