For general readers, Gornick, a memoirist, essayist, and critic, draws from interviews with about 100 women to describe their experiences as scientists and the contributions they made to biology, chemistry, physics, physiology, experimental psychology, and other sciences, addressing issues of discrimination and stereotypes along the way. Updated to include recent developments, this revised edition has been published on the 25th anniversary of the book's first publication and as part of the Women Writing Science Project of the National Science Foundation.
