wu, chien-shiung in Science
Wu
  (w)   
Chinese-born American physicist. Research with her colleagues on electron emission in the decay of radioactive elements showed that parity symmetry, long thought to hold for all physical laws, is in fact violated; the decay processes displayed odd parity, essentially entailing that nature distinguishes between right-handed and left-handed processes.
