Summary
"A to Z of Women in Science and Math profiles more than 150 women who throughout history and throughout the world have fought against stereotypes and in doing so have forged new discoveries and theories that have changed the way we view science. Each has had her own unique personal struggles that make her climb to scientific prominence all the more fascinating." "This book is a must-have resource for anyone interested in women's studies and the history of science. It contains a general bibliography; a visual chronology; four subject indexes that list women by field of study, country of birth, country of major scientific activity, and decade of birth; a comprehensive index; and 50 photographs depicting these remarkable women."--BOOK JACKET
