Here is a comparative history that illuminates some of the patterns that have emerged in the history of women in science." "This book features some of the most influential and pioneering studies of women in the sciences, with a special focus on patterns of education, access, barriers, and opportunities for women's work in science. Spanning the 17th through the 20th centuries, the book demonstrates the meaning and power of gender experienced by women in the sciences." "This book provides a thoughtful and detailed overview for scholars and students in the history of science, as well as for feminist historians, scientists, and others who want a comparative and historical analysis of women in the sciences."--Jacket."
