I've missed most of the posts on books lately- I came back from
break and just deleted everything to start afresh.
I don't know if anyone's discussed the book _Women in the
Field_ by Marcia Myers Bonta. It's a terrific book covering
history of both women and science. There are chapters on
everyone from Jane Colden to Racchel Carson, and on scientists
in many different fields.
Anyway, in your spare time :) it's a great book to pick up!
