Biographies of Women Scientists for Young Readers.
Bettis, Catherine; Smith, Walter S.
The participation of women in the physical sciences and engineering woefully lags behind that of men. One significant vehicle by which students learn to identify with various adult roles is through the literature they read. This annotated bibliography lists and describes biographies on women scientists primarily focusing on publications after 1980. The sections include: (1) anthropology, (2) astronomy, (3) aviation/aerospace engineering, (4) biology, (5) chemistry/physics, (6) computer science, (7) ecology, (8) ethology, (9) geology, and (10) medicine.
