Women Too in Science and Technology in Africa: A Resource Book for Counselling Girls and Young Women.
Harding, Jan; Apea, Emmanuel
This resource book profiles over 40 African female scientists and technologists. The women are presented as role models for young women to help challenge the gender biases that prevent girls and women from entering scientific fields. The profiles of the women employed in scientific and technological fields include photographs and excerpts from interviews. The book also presents current data on the number of women in scientific and technological fields, suggestions for raising those numbers, and a review of career opportunities in science and technology. A list of references and three appendices also are included: (1) Women in education, training and employment: selected African countries; (2) Entry requirements for professional training and education; and (3) Sources of information.
