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 ...

MEDIA REVIEWS

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. - Parents In Touch

One of the attractions of this book is the sheer variety of women represented. It is inspirational for any young child to see the contribution of female talent to so many significant scientific advances. - The Carousel

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. - Royal Society

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

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. - Upworthy

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

Though the number of women working in Science, Technology, Engineering and Manufacture (STEM) is slowly on the increase, there is still a huge abscence of women pursuing jobs within the sector today. And that is exactly why young readers need a book like Women in Science! Ignotofsky explores a subject matter that is not only relevant but, in my opinion, essential for inspiring the next generation of female pioneers for the future. What I love most about the look and feel of this book is that it uses colorful infographics. It is, in no way, prissy or feminine. And with a real mixed bag of over fifty women discussed, with more mentioned at the back, you can't help but read it and think how great an addition it would be to any school library. - The School Librarian
