Women in science

Throughout history, women in science have not always been given the credit they deserve, and the effects of this are felt today, with only around 30 per cent of female students selecting STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) in higher education. It’s time to celebrate and champion the pioneering women who have paved the way for future generations of female scientists – including biographies of inspirational women in science history such as Caroline Herschel, Rosalind Franklin and Ada Lovelace, interviews with leading women at the forefront of scientific research, and the science behind the issues affecting women in today’s society.
