Wonder Women

25 Innovators, Inventors, and Trailblazers Who Changed History
Written by Sam Maggs | Narrated by Jodelle Ferland
This “down-to-earth and often humorous” book (Library Journal) is full of profiles of forgotten women that are “genuinely astounding” (The Village Voice). “Odds are, you’ll find your new hero in this book” (Bustle).

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

A fun and feminist look at forgotten women in science, technology, and beyond, from the bestselling author of The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy

You may think you know women’s history pretty well. But have you ever heard of…

  • Alice Ball, the chemist who developed an effective treatment for leprosy-only to have the credit taken by a man?
  • Mary Sherman Morgan, the rocket scientist whose liquid fuel compounds blasted the first U.S. satellite into orbit?
  • Huang Daopo, the inventor whose weaving technology revolutionized textile production in China-centuries before the cotton gin?

Smart women have always been able to achieve amazing things, even when the odds were stacked against them. In Wonder Women, author Sam Maggs tells the stories of the brilliant, brainy, and totally rad women in history who broke barriers as scientists, engineers, mathematicians, adventurers, and inventors. Plus, interviews with real-life women in STEM careers, an extensive bibliography, and a guide to women-centric science and technology organizations-all to show the many ways the geeky girls of today can help to build the future.
