it was amazing

March is Women's History Month and in honor of it here is one of my picks to read this month.

Headstrong: 52 Women Who Changed Science-and the World has 7 Sections :

Medicine
Biology and Environment
Genetics and Development
Physics
Earth and Stars
Math and technology
Invention

I jumped around when reading. I did not read all the bios and feel that with what I read I can still give it 5 stars. I will say many of the women I read about I had never heard of before but had heard of the inventions, products, etc.

More well known women Ada Lovelace and Hedy Lemarr are featured along with lesser known women - Hertha Ayrton, Ruth Benerito and Stephanie Kwolek.

I feel the book would be a great addition to any school's curriculum.
