Canadian Bulletin of Medical History"...a worthwhile read for young girls considering a career in science. It also makes a significant contribution to attempts to document the history of women in science."
Posted September 7, 2001
As a young female scientist, I found that this book shed some light onto my dreams and made me realize that maybe being a scientist really doesn't have to be a choice between a career and a family. The book painted a realistic picture of what it is like to be a research scientist and gave a detailed description of what many different types of women felt about family and how they handled children and husbands and colleagues. There was also a good thread between the different generations of women that made me feel included in the history of so many women and in the future of even more women. With a bit of work, it will become easier for women to become eminent women in science. I highly recommended this book to my fellow students here at Wesleyan College as well as faculty and staff.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
