Gr 6 Up--Brief but compelling biographies of 10 women who made significant contributions to their respective fields. From Birute Galdikas's study of orangutans to Mae Jemison's flight into space, these women have fought discrimination and oppression to become leaders within the scientific and medical communities. Other entries include: Mildred Dresselhaus, Mary-Claire King, Mary Leakey, Rita Levi-Montalcini, Susan Love, Helen Taussig, Chien-Shiung Wu, and Rosalyn Yalow. Each women's career and life is summed up in about 10 pages, enough to get an introduction to the pioneer, as well as inspire further reading. The subjects are presented in a lively, entertaining manner and are accompanied by a full-page photograph.
