There have been many op-ed pieces and articles published about women in science chronicling their ups, downs and everything in between.
This anthology profiles 20 women in various fields of science, from molecular biology to physics, astronomy to zoology. They come from various socioeconomic, ethnic and geographical backgrounds. Some are well known, others you may just hear of for the first time. Some are still alive, while others are now circulating as a part of our universe. Some may have found their career path easier than others. Some may have had additional labels threaten to weigh them down.
Something you’ll find they all have in common is a curiosity and a passion – about their field and their work – and a desire to make the world a better place.
