Goodreads Review Headstrong: 52 Women Who Changed Science

Headstrong: 52 Women Who Changed Science-and the WorldHeadstrong: 52 Women Who Changed Science-and the World by Rachel Swaby
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

  • March is Women’s History Month and in honor of it here is one of my picks to read this month.Headstrong: 52 Women Who Changed Science-and the World has 7 Sections :

    Medicine
    Biology and Environment
    Genetics and Development
    Physics
    Earth and Stars
    Math and technology
    Invention

    I jumped around when reading. I did not read all the bios and feel that with what I read I can still give it 5 stars. I will say many of the women I read about I had never heard of before but had heard of the inventions, products, etc.

    More well known women Ada Lovelace and Hedy Lemarr are featured along with lesser known women – Hertha Ayrton, Ruth Benerito and Stephanie Kwolek.

    I feel the book would be a great addition to any school’s curriculum.
