The phenomenal work of archeologist Mary Anning led to crucial discoveries and theories, such as Darwin's groundbreaking theory of evolution, yet her story is often overshadowed by men scientists whose work she inspired. This enlightening book explores the lives, accomplishments, and obstacles of vital women scientists in life sciences such as Anning. Mini bio and feature boxes give readers fast facts, while quotes from scientists and their contemporaries inspire readers to explore the wonders of STEM for themselves. A gallery spread introduces readers to even more women scientists. Readers will see the accomplishments of women in life sciences in a thorough timeline, while a Science Now section introduces readers to the where life sciences are at today.
