Summer Reads: Women in Science by Rachel Ignotofsky

When I was little and people asked what do you want to be when you grow up, I’d say an artist or a scientist. Sadly, my love of science vanished when I came to the understanding of how much math was involved as I wasn’t good at it. Art however was easy and I found to be a unique new way of seeing things in my life.

In Women in Science; 50 fearless pioneers who changed the world, Ignotofsky introduces readers to each of these women and the impossible lists of things they had to overcome to not only practice science but to make life changing discoveries.

Women in Science

Many of the women featured were denied pay, funds for research or even proper laboratories.

This is a wonderful book to give to girls who are interested in science, math and engineering. Currently, only 24% of the STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Math) Sector is female and only 39% of Science & engineering graduates are female, even though we make up nearly half of the total work force. Pg. 84

Women in Science

Not only are each of these women inspirational to girls and all those interested in science but the one page reading was easy to read and the images were beautiful on sleek heavy weighted paper. Each image drawn with care like horoscopes floating in the sky to inspire us from above.
