Product description


This is most definitely a book to be read by your daughters and your sons and one which is sure to inspire a future generation of 'Women In Science'. (The Bookbag)

Readers will find a wide variety of nationalities, ethnic backgrounds, orientations and social classes. Girls will find someone who looks like them. Hooray! And it's not just a selection of the usual suspects either - Marie Curie is here, yes, but so are less famous women who were and are no less pioneering and brilliant. ...
... and you know, Women in Science is also beautiful. Ignofotsky is a graphic designer and she has produced here not just beautiful illustrations that draw the eye and persuade it to linger, but also a great density of information distilled into nuggets of wonderful clarity. I could look at this book for hours. I wish I could have owned it as a child because I just know I would have returned to it over and over again.
Highly, highly recommended.

Book Description

Throughout history, many women have asked questions about our world. When they were told, 'You can't', they replied: 'Try and stop me.'
