I'm reading a book now called THE OUTER CIRCLE: WOMEN IN THE SCIENTIFIC
COMMUNITY ed by Zuckerman et al, Norton 1992. (by memory, so
may not be completely accurate). This has a series of articles
attempting to measure how women's scientific productivity is affected
by gender, and includes theoretical discussion, interviews, and
some primary data.
Suggested biographies includ A FEELING FOR THE ORGANISM on Barbara
McClintock (Keller) and ROSLAND FRANKLIN AND DNA (Sayre).
