A comprehensive historical review of the debates surrounding women's contributions and roles in science, with emphasis on women's access to education, training, and professional careers.

· Includes a bibliography of primary and secondary sources divided into subsections based on topic, a complete subject index, and illustrations of the major female figures throughout the history of science

Book Description:

"Biology is destiny" has been a recurring proclamation throughout history. Nowhere has that proclamation been harder fought and exceptions more bitterly won than in the realm of women in science. The accomplishments of women in science have been documented since the time of the ancient Greeks, but the struggle for acceptance has been Herculean and it is far from over.

"About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
