About this product
- DescriptionAcclaimed writer and journalist Vivian Gornick updates the ground-breaking book with new interviews. The original book asked, 'What does it mean to be a woman working in scientific research? How [does] frequently being denied funding, tenure, and opportunity affect women scientists' confidence and their perspective on the fulfilment to be found in work?'. A quarter century later, Gornick shows how far women have come and how much further they still have to go, starting with the moment when the President of Harvard chalked up the lack of women in science to 'innate differences between men and women' Gornick finds that the discrimination against women in science is stubborn and resilient.But, unfortunately, so too are female astromers, physicists, and biochemists. She interviews famous and lesser-kwn scientists, and shows that while science is still widely male dominated, women's expectations for themselves have risen exponentially. The book provides a fresh description of the challenges these women have endured, and the success they've achieved.
- Author BiographyVivian Gornick is the bestselling author of the acclaimed memoir Fierce Attachments, a biography of Emma Goldman, and three essay collections: The Men in My Life, Approaching Eye Level, and The End of the Novel of Love, which was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award.
