Subject: HELP!! Books wanted

I'm going to take a reading course in women's studies this summer. What 
I need is a list of good books on women and science, particularly bio, 
to read. i get to design the course. :) I'm really interested in either 
biographies, autobiographies, or just books dealing with the 
problems/advantages of being a woman in science.

So any books that anyone would recommend are **very** welcome. Thanks in 

I have been lurking here for some time, following threads that interest 
me.  I am somewhat embarrassed to have my first contribution be an 
advertisement but ... 

my book, "Hypatia's Heritage:  A History of Women in Science from 
Antiquity through the Nineteenth Century"  is available from Beacon 
Press, Boston.  It was published in 1986 but is still in print and is 
available directly from Beacon or through your local bookstore.  In Great 
Britain, it is available from The Women's Press, London.  It is also 
available in Spanish, Italian, Swedish, Greek, and German Editions.
