Profiles: Australian Women Scientists
Here are sixteen tales of scientific discovery. In their own words, Australian women scientists tell the stories of their lives, their work and the secrets of their success. Until now, their world-famous achievements have not been widely known in their own country. In this remarkable book all talk candidly about their careers, describing not just the obstacles that many encountered--personal, social and institutionalised discrimination--but also their inspirations and influences.
