BBC 100 Women is celebrating talented women from history whose work has been overshadowed by their male relatives.

Katsushika Oei was an accomplished painter, but her work is less known about than her father Katsushika Hokusai’s.

Fanny Mendelssohn composed more than 400 works of music, most of which were unpublished in her lifetime. Some of those that were, were published under her brother’s name.

Simone Cousteau was the first female aquanaut, and she explored and researched the ocean with her husband Jacques aboard their ship.

The astronomer Caroline Herschel discovered eight comets – one was named after her. But her work is less known about than her brother William’s, who discovered Uranus.

Many know of the work of Albert Einstein, but there is significant debate around how much his first wife, Mileva, contributed to his discoveries.

Watch stories of women who should have been better credited by their husbands, brothers or fathers.

    Every time someone mentions the realities of misogyny, racism, Islamophobia etc. out come conservative (mostly white) men in droves being dismissive! Instead of acknowledging the issue, they remind us all how sensitive and unlikeable they are by doubling down and talking about 'pandering to the left' and 'identity politics'. Then they wonder why the issues persist and people never stop talking about them!
    Just LOOK at the comments under this video. Typical …

  8. Comic Book Guy says:

    Whatever. You can thank women for men's greater push for excellence and dominance.
    Women (especially the most physically attractive ones) implicitly demand male excellence and dominance and reward such men with sex, whereas men who don't excel and aren't dominant generally won't attract the most desirable women.

  9. Chetan Biswas says:
