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.

The introductory chapter gives a few explicit reasons why the author, Rachel Ignotofsky, felt it was important to write a book about women in science. This is filled with the stories of 50 amazing women who made their mark in science. In fact there were some women I had not heard of. This is an amazing collection of women who have brought important facts and information to our lives. The illustrations are pertinent and help to tell the stories. Little drawings and info are to be found in the sides of each page.
I urge parents and schools and libraries to provide this book for our children. It is very important that boys and girls and men and women know the history of women in science.

Bought for my science loving daughters 13th birthday, it hasn’t disappointed. Beautifully illustrated in a contemporary style that appeals to adults, young adults and children alike. Fascinating stories of these great women and their breakthrough, challenges and achievements! Great book!
