Throughout the month of March, The Smithsonian Channel aired all-new original programming, exploring the scientific contributions of five female scientists: Elisabeth Blackburn, JoGayle Howard, Nan Hauser, Elisabeth Kalko, and Gudrun Pflueger. (I featured one of the programs, about Gudrun Pflueger, earlier this month.)

As the month of programming wraps up, in order to commemorate the Women in Science programming, and to celebrate Women in Science more generally, I've got some schwag from the Smithsonian Channel to give away to a reader!

The schwag package includes: the Smithsonian Channel bag (in the back; hard to tell its a bag), long-sleeve t-shirt, water bottle, and the 3 DVDs: (1) Wanted: Anaconda, (2) The Big Blue, and (3) Pandas in the Wild.

In order to win: comment on this post with the name and link to the blog of one or more of your favorite female science bloggers, along with a few lines about why you like that particular writer or blog.

By the end, hopefully we'll have another place for people to come and find new blogs to read, penned by female writers. After one week - on Friday, March 8, at 10am Eastern - I'll close comments, and randomly choose one of the commenters to receive the schwag.

Note: This isn't an April Fool's Day joke! Today is the last day of this programming block, and I wanted to get this up before it completely ended.
