Summary Note This book celebrates 48 unsung scientific heroines whose hugely important, yet broadly unacknowledged or incorrectly attributed, discoveries have transformed our understanding of the scientific world. Mary Anning, the amateur paleontologist whose fossil findings changed scientific thinking about prehistoric life. Emmy Noether, dubbed The Mighty Mathematician You've Never Heard Of. Ynés Mexía, the Mexican-American botanist who discovered over 500 new plant species. Wangari Maathai, who started an environmental and ecological revolution in Kenya. Margaret Sanger, the maverick nurse who paved the way for the legalization of contraception. Chapters including Earth & Universe; Biology & Natural Sciences; Medicine & Psychology; Physics & Chemistry; Mathematics and Technology & Inventions profile the female scientists who have defied the odds, and the opposition, to change the world around us.
