Interviews with 37 women scientists and students in which they share what helped them enter the sciences, what they found there, and what helped them stay in areas which are often hostile to women. Twenty short papers from women scientists, educators, and philosophers give advice on broad philosophical questions, education, professional matters, and gender issues.
