by Rachel Baker on May 24, 2015

It seems a week doesn’t go by where we don’t hear about STEM and some of the great strides we are making in making science and tech education more accessible for our daughters.

A new book has come out that showcases 52 women and their contributions to science, each ultimately changing the world. Rachel Swaby is the author of the book and provided a list of her top ten favorite women scientists for The Guardian this week.

I invite you to take a gander and ponder not just the women but the time periods the women lived in and how difficult it must have been to get recognition for their achievements.

Here’s the article:The 10 best unsung female scientists
