Engineers have developed everything from life-saving medical devices to universe-exploring space probes." "In fact, engineers may have more impact on our quality of life than any other profession. In what better hands to entrust our well-being than the hands of women engineers? Since the turn of the 20th century, women engineers have worked to make a difference in the lives of their families, the prosperity of their countries, and the safety of the world." "Did you know that a woman engineer was the first woman to win a case in the U.S. Supreme Court? Or that a woman engineer was the technical director for the animated movie, A Bug's Life? Or that a woman engineer, right now, is developing a cure for cancer?" "From the compelling stories of these women and 235 women engineers, we get an entirely new perspective on the engineering profession: a woman's perspective on why engineering is an awesome way to change the world."--Jacket." ;
