Format: Paperback
Science is no longer strictly a boy's club. "Women in Science: Then and Now" takes a look at the history of women in science, from when male scientists stated that a woman's inferior mind couldn't handle science, to today's fields where women are curing diseases and doing astrophysics work - in some cases better than any man can. Interviewing scientists of all shapes and sizes, author Vivian Gornick provides a motivating picture of how science can be and is a woman's game as well. "Women in Science" is an excellent read for any woman thinking of science as a career.

This was given as a gift to a young woman who is a PhD candidate in chemistry.

She loved the book--to be a woman in a "hard" science still has its significant challenges, and young women in particular are often amazed at what grit the women going before them had, and what grit it is going to take them to "go where no man has gone before."

Reading about your role models, or finding role models, is a wonderful thing for any student.

Great book for women in science and for aspiring women in science! It was a great fun informative read that gave personal accounts to get a true glimpse of what is going on inside the science academia.

I think this is a great read for any woman interested in science. It isn't a man-basher book which I like a lot and interviews a lot of women!
