"Historian Kim Tolley has written an important book....Tolley is the first to bring together th ediverse elements of the story in a comprehensive way. In fact, no one has really studied the history of science education of American girls (elementary through secondary) as thoroughly as she has....Tolley retains a firm hand and does not take sides."
-American Journal of Education
"Making use of vignettes, quantitative data, and illustrations, this richly written book traces the complex series of events that led to the domination of males in school science by the 20th century. A must-read for every scholar with interest in gender, issues of equity, history of education, and science education. Practitioners in science will also find this treatment of women and science education insightful."
"Wide ranging in its coverage and sometimes provocative in its analysis....This pioneering book will surely encourage further study of issues of gender and science education."
-"Isis, March 2004

-Science Education, 2004
