A wonderful celebration of the achievements of the intrepid women from both the ancient and the modern worlds ... Inspiring and informative
Surrey Advertiser
If there were constellations celebrating the incredible accomplishments of women in science, Rachel Ignotofsky's illustrations would serve as the blueprints. 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
The book is a beautifully curated collection of personal narratives from female scientists from a wide variety of backgrounds and disciplines, with a dash of whimsy thrown in.

This is a treasury of fascinating information beautifully illustrated. A book that will inspire future generations of women scientists, the secret to success remains the same, "creativity, persistence and a love of discovery were the greatest tools these women had.

This is most definitely a book to be read by your daughters and your sons and one which is sure to inspire a future generation of 'Women In Science'.
The Bookbag
Readers will find a wide variety of nationalities, ethnic backgrounds, orientations and social classes. Girls will find someone who looks like them. Hooray! And it's not just a selection of the usual suspects either - Marie Curie is here, yes, but so are less famous women who were and are no less pioneering and brilliant. ... ... and you know, Women in Science is also beautiful. Ignofotsky is a graphic designer and she has produced here not just beautiful illustrations that draw the eye and persuade it to linger, but also a great density of information distilled into nuggets of wonderful clarity. I could look at this book for hours. I wish I could have owned it as a child because I just know I would have returned to it over and over again. Highly, highly recommended.
The Bookbag

The history of science is full of the achievements of women scientists and they are celebrated in this fascinating book which will be an inspiration to all young people looking to a career in science - and will hopefully encourage those who still feel science is a man's world.
