Description
Information
Why, when girls outstrip boys in exams, are there still so few women in the top levels of science? Why have women been excluded - and is there still discrimination?

Acclaimed science writer and children's author Patricia Fara investigates science past and present to find answers. She examines how women have struggled against unequal opportunities, and shows how they succeeded despite the obstacles stacked against them. All the renowned names are here - Marie Curie, Florence Nightingale, Rosalind Franklin - but Scientists Anonymous also reveals the stories of many dedicated, brilliant women who have been forgotten. Combining history, science and biography, Fara presents female explorers, mathematicians, astronomers and chemists from all over the world - including some who disguised themselves as men.

And what about the future? Fara suggests that understanding women's achievements in the past will help today's schoolgirls to become tomorrow's celebrated scientists.
