The Madame Curie Complex: The Hidden History of Women in Science

'“The story of women in science is an ongoing tale of discrimination and misunderstanding—and of smart females finding ways to use their brains and creativity, despite formidable barriers. Julie Des Jardins has done a wonderful service by assembling their history. Give this book to Lawrence Summers!” —Claudia Dreifus, author of Scientific Conversations   “A fascinating book about the lives and struggles of women scientists.” —Beverly Whipple, co-author of The G Spot and Other Recent Discoveries about Human Sexuality   “In The Madame Curie Complex, Julie Des Jardins examines the careers of women scientists from Curie to Jane Goodall. Most of them probably won’t be familiar to readers, but they should be, not only for their scientific contributions, but for the ways in which their work was marginalized and made more difficult than it had to be.” —Bookpage   “A solid combination of a feminist critique and a fascinating discussion of the progression of 20th- and 21st-century science.” —Kirkus'
