Books About Women in STEM 

Print Article
Sally Ride, first American woman in space. 


Each March for Women's History Month, we update our collection of books for all ages that provide a well-rounded introduction to the lives of women scientists and engineers. Women in a diverse range of fields are profiled in these books, and the selected titles excel in presenting their subjects as complex and multi-dimensional individuals who faced and overcame a wide variety of challenges.

For 2017 we have added some recent books and also a number of older books from our archive that have particular relevance for the history of women in science. The annotations are adapted from reviews published in SB&F or from publisher's information about the books.
