A gloriously illustrated celebration of trailblazing women. Women in Science highlights the contributions of fifty notable women to the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, from both the ancient and modern worlds. The book also contains fascinating infographics and an illustrated scientific glossary.

The extraordinary women profiled include well-known figures like the physicist and chemist Marie Curie, as well as lesser-known pioneers such as Katherine Johnson, the African-American mathematician who calculated the trajectory of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon.

Women in Science celebrates the achievements of the intrepid women who have paved the way for the next generation of female engineers, biologists, mathematicians, doctors, astronauts, physicists and beyond ...

Now, in the same series, Women in Sport: Fifty Fearless Athletes Who Played to Win, is available to order.

'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

'A fascinating and superbly presented book' - Parents In Touch

'I am in love with this book ... all girls should have a cop'y - Waterstones Bookseller Review

'Gorgeously illustrated ... Ignotofsky introduces us to a succession of extraordinary individuals' - Teach Primary

'Thoroughly inspiring and informative: a must for every child' - Book Trust 

'With short, inspiring stories and the accessibility of a graphic novel, Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed The World is the perfect book to share with the science- and tech-minded people (male and female, young and old) in your life ... The must-read, girl-power STEM book.' - InStyle.com 

'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
