A Feminist's holy Bible. Thank you for this great short book Rachel. As a Scientist my teacher talked a lot about Rosalind Franklin, and how her data was key to the double helix model. But she was never credited for her work, And i'm glad that the truth got out, and everyone now knows that it was a team work, Not just Watson and Crick. my teacher also talked a lot about Barbara mCclintock, and how she was treated and isolated but she made a major breakthrough when she discovered transposition and used it to demonstrate that genes are responsible for changing corn's color (phenotype). i learned about the rest of these strong, successful women from this book.
