Sample Answer:
This is a really nice topic and I would love to talk about a news story I read recently. In fact last month I read a news story in a magazine which was about the contributions of women scientists in the human history. It was a fascinating and educative news story and the whole article was quite informative.

I am not sure about the exact date but my best assumption is 10-14 May was the time when I read the news story in the magazine. The magazine that covered this news story is a monthly Science & Technology magazine called ‘Tech-World’.

I thought this was a very intriguing news story and it was a good read. I found it quite informative and the way the writer presented the news-story was outstanding. This news story tells the readers about the life, work and contributions of Marie Curie, Rosalind Franklin, Rachel Carson, Ada Lovelace, Alice Wilson and many other famous scientists as well as about many little-known women scientists. I found it quite captivating as it covered an interesting topic. Though we know about some famous female scientists, but contributions of other less known female scientists towards the enhancement of science was not known to me.

Honestly, I knew very little about women scientists and their invaluable researches and works for science except Marie Curie and Rosalind Franklin. This news story presented how women in history have contributed towards the advancement of science and their sacrifices were remarkable and should never be forgotten. The topic itself was very enthralling and the way the story was presented was quite unique. I remember this news story possibly because of its interesting topic and outstanding description. I think such news story should be more frequent in science magazines to educate its readers.
