Book Description:

"Biology is destiny" has been a recurring proclamation throughout history. Nowhere has that proclamation been harder fought and exceptions more bitterly won than in the realm of women in science. The accomplishments of women in science have been documented since the time of the ancient Greeks, but the struggle for acceptance has been Herculean and it is far from over.

About the Author:

Leigh Whaley is assistant professor of history at Acadia University, Wolfville, NS, Canada.

Book Description ABC-CLIO Ltd, United Kingdom, 2003. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This remarkable work illuminates the debates surrounding women s involvement with science throughout history, covering a broad range of disciplines. Unlike a biographical compendium of great scientists, it examines the question posed throughout history: Are women capable of doing science? Whether people have the right to even ask the question is germane to the debate itself. The coverage discusses Hypatia, the first female scientist about whom we have information; examines the contradictory behavior of the church in the treatment of women during the medieval era; and covers the 17th century debates over women s education. It examines women physicians, discusses feminism and science, and delves into why there are so few women in science--even today. The debate that began during the time of Plato and Aristotle continues to this day. Seller Inventory # APC9781576072301
