Good beginning and ending.
The middle felt like a list of women's achievements rather than getting the reader engaged with their lives.
This book is deeply inspiring. It tells tale of so many minds unrecognized and contributions devalued for the gender of their engineer... sadder still it details many lives of women, who were dedicated scientists, forced to develop male aliases to have their contributions accepted by peers.
