$14.40 Member Price

Headstrong: 52 Women Who Changed Science - and the World delivers a powerful, global, and engaging response to the question 'Who are the role models for today's female scientists, and where can we find the stories that cast them in their true light?'

Covering Nobel Prize winners and major innovators, as well as lesser-known but hugely significant scientists who influence our every day, author Rachel Swaby's vibrant profiles span centuries of courageous thinkers and illustrate how each one's ideas developed, from their first moment of scientific engagement through the research and discovery for which they're best known. This fascinating tour reveals these fifty-two women at their best - while encouraging and inspiring a new generation of girls to put on their lab coats.
