March 8th (today) is International Women's Day!
At Hypatia Extracts, we take this very seriously. Our company was founded on the dual notions of the strength and leadership of women.
Our namesake, Hypatia of Alexandria, was a scientist, educator, astronomer, mathematician, and philosopher nearly two thousand years ago. None of these professions were fashionable then, and they were certainly not fashionable for women.
But—as we now say—“nevertheless, she persisted."
Hypatia overcame many obstacles in her time, and she has become a symbol—both for our company, and in the public consciousness at large for women in the sciences.
Our CEO, Dr. Mary Lewis, is our Chief Scientist and Director of Extraction. Her knowledge of chemistry is the cornerstone of our business, and her leadership has transformed Hypatia Extracts from a mere idea in our heads to a literal brick-and-mortar office and laboratory, where we are constantly researching and developing new ideas to create the highest quality hemp-based products available.
We're proud to work for Dr. Mary, and we're grateful for her contributions every single day.
And, as luck would have it, it's also Dr. Mary's birthday today! Help us celebrate both Mary's birthday and International Women's Day and tell the women in your life how much you appreciate them.
