About this product
- DescriptionThroughout history the environment for female scientists has been at best exclusionary, at worst it has been openly hostile. Why would anyone voluntarily expose themselves to an environment where they are unwanted and unwelcome? What were the obstacles the women scientists had to overcome and how did they succeed to the extent that we even kw their names? This book is an attempt to answer these questions, both for women of the past and the present.
