Reading this book will help young women understand what challenges they will face if they pursue a career in math, but also that this career path *is possible* for women, and has been successfully achieved by *many* women before them.
At the same time, not every women profiled in this book is a math teacher. Many young students believe this is the only option for a person with a degree in mathematics, but this book samples from a wide array of jobs, from nutritionists to engineers to math teachers (like me)
I recommend this book, especially for women pursuing a degree in math, but it would also be helpful for young men thinking about receiving a degree in math because it displays an array of job possibilities that can be achieved with a math degree.
I wrote the chapter about the satellite electrical power system. It was a great pleasure to work with the editor, Marla Parker.
