Can you name a single important female scientist who isn’t Marie Curie? Probably not. But Rachel Swaby can name scores of them--and she does exactly that in her new book Headstrong: 52 Women Who Changed Science – and the World. Swaby has written a fascinating collection of profiles of women who made important contributions to science, math and medicine, but who most of us have never heard of. Why? Who were they? What did they do? And why have their accomplishments gone so long hidden from the public? The book is published by Broadway Books.
