"In [The Double Helix, Watson] tells about how happy they were, he and Crick, that my husband was not allowed to come because had he come, he would
no doubt have seen these excellent photographs that Rosalind Franklin made and had and which, when they saw them, with their
other data, they were able to work out the structure of DNA...[If] ever there was a woman who was mistreated, it was Rosalind
Franklin, and she didn't get the notice that she should have gotten for her work on DNA."
