Women in STEM: Against All Odds

by Annika Nikhar

Women in STEM: Against All Odds features profiles of brilliant women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics from around the world. Spanning from the early 1800s to the twenty-first century, all of the women in this book overcame many obstacles to become trailblazers in their fields.

Two centuries ago, most women couldn’t get a comprehensive education, let alone enter the science fields. Today they hold some of the world’s most prestigious prizes, including the Fields Medal, the Nobel Prize, and more. They have come a long way! This book highlights some of the world’s underrepresented female scientists and their lasting impacts. From pure mathematics to phytochemistry to meteorology, learn about the various STEM fields and hurdles that these women faced in gaining their success.
