內容簡介


傑出女科學家的挑戰,往往不只來自科學,更來自性別。 

你知道史上的第一個電腦程式是由女性設計嗎?你知道發現性別由X與Y染色體決定的是女性嗎?你知道唯一榮獲兩種不同領域諾貝爾獎章殊榮的也是女性嗎?縱觀歷史,許多女性為了研究科學不惜一切代價,有許多偉大且重要的女性,遲遲未受到應有的肯定。一想到女科學家,我們不該只想得出居禮夫人;一講到物理學,我們不應只說得出愛因斯坦,也要曉得天才數學家埃米‧諾特;談到科技的進步時,別忘了除了史帝夫‧賈伯斯與比爾‧蓋茲之外,更該記得現代程式設計的原創人葛麗絲‧霍普……本書說的就是這些女科學家當中五十位傑出女性的故事,她們有的活在古希臘時代,有的生於現代,但面對「不可以」的時候,她們都這麼說:「看你能不能阻擋我。」 

「別讓別人使你氣餒,或跟你說你做不到。以前許多人都對我說女人別學化學,我真看不出女性不該學化學的理由。」──格特魯德‧埃利恩(1988年諾貝爾生理學或醫學獎得主) 
「如果社會現狀不容女性自由發展,那就必須改造社會。」──伊莉莎白‧布萊克威爾(第一位在美國得到醫學學位的女性) 

跟著五十位從古至今成就非凡的女性科學家, 
在科學、技術、工程、數學(STEM)領域探索, 
未來世代的偉大科學家可能就是你!

It’s a scientific fact: Women rock!
 

A charmingly illustrated and educational book, New York Times best seller Women in Science highlights the contributions of fifty notable women to the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) from the ancient to the modern world. Full of striking, singular art, this fascinating collection also contains infographics about relevant topics such as lab equipment, rates of women currently working in STEM fields, and an illustrated scientific glossary. The trailblazing women profiled include well-known figures like primatologist Jane Goodall, as well as lesser-known pioneers such as Katherine Johnson, the African-American physicist and mathematician who calculated the trajectory of the 1969 Apollo 11 mission to the moon.
 
Women in Science celebrates the achievements of the intrepid women who have paved the way for the next generation of female engineers, biologists, mathematicians, doctors, astronauts, physicists, and more!
