The Madame Curie Complex

The Hidden History of Women in Science

Julie Des Jardins

Des Jardins uncovers the stories of prominent women scientists – from Rachel Carson to Jane Goodall to the women of the Manhattan Project—to explore how women often approach science differently than men. She offers insight into the barriers women in science face as well as their successes, and shows how socially defined gender roles have shaped scientific inquiry.

Women in Science

Vivian Gornick

Women in Science explores the persistent sexism and gender bias in the male-dominated world of science. In the 1980s, author and essayist Vivian Gornick interviewed women who were often the only ones in their laboratory. In this new edition she follows up with many of them to uncover that not much has changed. Though little progress has been made toward gender equality in scientific fields, Gornick shows that women still continue to defy gender stereotypes and persist in pushing the boundaries of possibilities.
