There have been plenty of grievances over the years about the lack of women represented in LEGO building sets (not to mention the appearance of existing female minifigs), but the block maker is looking to change all of that by adding more female characters to its range. As part of their Minifigures Series 11 collection, LEGO has just debuted a female chemist that comes complete with two LEGO Erlenmeyer flasks! (Her name is Professor C. Bodin, according to her ID tag.) The new Minifig is one of many upcoming figures that will represent women who work in various fields of science; two other proposed Minifigures include an astronomer who looks out at the night sky through a LEGO telescope, and a Paleontologist who inspects a LEGO T-rex.
