I can't say enough about this book. It's simply stunning with its beautiful illustrations. It's educational but in a fun way to read or browse. It's all I am woman hear me roar! Damn these women are brilliant and everyone should pay homage.

Don't let the size of this book fool you because all of the 127 pages are jam packed with a plethora of information! In addition to the engaging images, that encompass just about every available space on the page, is the perfect amount of knowledge to leave you wanting to know more about these women oft unheard. Both STEM and Art fields are where representation, diversity for women REALLY matters, yet is sorely lacking. Ms. Ignotofsky answers this siren call with Women in Science, a must read for everyone of all ages!

An amazing book brought to life with colorful artwork that's as vivacious as the women it chronicles. This is an empowering collection of female innovators and a history lesson on the many struggles women face while following their passions. Compiled in a way that is both engaging and easily digestible, it was something I could read a few pages of whenever I had a free moment.
