Bringing Simone Cousteau's adventures to the surface

BBC 100 Women is celebrating talented women from history whose work has been overshadowed by their male relatives.

Simone Cousteau was the first female aquanaut, and she explored and researched the ocean with her husband Jacques aboard their ship.

Watch more stories here of women who should have been better credited by their husbands, brothers or fathers.

You can find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and use #100Women.
