Editorial Reviews

Review

“This charming encyclopedia includes a page of text and a fanciful drawing of the women scientists you’ve heard of—and plenty who you haven’t! The book has good coverage of the 1800s and early 1900s—a critical time when women’s expanding participation in science was changing the very structure of how knowledge is pursued. . . . Ignotofsky’s profiles of diverse female scientists is a great addition to the shelf of any student, of any age.”—Hope Jahren, FADERmagazine

“With the help of eye-catching artwork, Ignotofsky celebrates not just astronauts, but also the engineers, biologists, mathematicians, and physicists who’ve blazed a trail for women in STEM. . . . The book elevates this information with beautiful and instructive infographics that delve into topics like the number of women currently working in STEM fields.”
Entertainment Weekly

“This book of illustrated biographies of scientific pioneers is hands-down gorgeous. . . . Kids will love paging through this, looking at all the detailed drawings, but they’ll likely have to rip it out of the hands of the adults who are marveling at each new page of factoids.”
Bitch Media

“The world needs more books like this.”
Scientific American
 
“A clever introduction to women scientists through history.”
Science Friday (Best Science Books of the Year)

“If there were constellations celebrating the incredible accomplishments of women in science, Rachel Ignotofsky’s illustrations would serve as the blueprints. As Ignotofsky floats NASA computer programmer and mathematician Annie Easley amid rockets and stars, surrounds Higgs boson discoverer Sau Lan Wu with particles, and cradles Barbara McClintock with corn and chromosomes, she anchors her dreamy depictions into our brains.
Women in Science captures the joy of so many essential discoveries while also celebrating the extraordinary lives of the women who’ve achieved them.”—Rachel Swaby, author of Headstrong: 52 Women Who Changed Science—and the World

“I wish I had a daughter so I could give her a copy of Rachel Ignotofsky's lovingly illustrated
Women in Science. In addition to Marie Curie, Rosalind Franklin, and Ada Lovelace, the book profiles dozens of less familiar female scientists—Black, Asian, Jewish, Russian, French, in stylish dresses, lab coats, trousers, spacesuits, shorts—whose accomplishments in astronomy, physics, mathematics, biology, psychology, and computer science came as news even to me. Ignotofsky provides young women with the courage and confidence to follow the exciting paths these pioneers have blazed before them.”—Eileen Pollack, author of The Only Woman in the Room: Why Science Is Still a Boys' Club

“In Rachel Ignotofsky’s edifying and inspiring book we meet some of history’s most remarkable women. Each profile contains extraordinary stories of obstacles and achievements. The drawings float on the pages’ dark backgrounds, making each figure appear to hover in the sky like a constellation. That’s what the reader is doing in this book: stargazing.”
—Lauren Redniss, author of Radioactive and Thunder & Lightning
