    Women in Mathematics isn't uite the book I wanted it to be Written in the 70s it's fairly dated and Western centric and I'm sure there are some non European women in math history who would have been highlighted had this been written today The writing's also stilted and occasionally bad see Her education had been a rather desultory one mostly self directed uite haphazard and scant Please remove some adjectivesBut on the positive side the women highlighted are all heroes for doing the work they did when they did it From Hypatia who was martyred by ignorant Christians afraid of her new ideas to the Maruise de Châtelet who translated Newton into French and provided intelligent commentary to Mary Fairfax Somerville who studied Euclid at night despite her family confiscating her candles these women's determination is admirable And although her contributions were primarily in astronomy Caroline Herschel is awesome A moon crater is named after herBut my recommendation is to just read the wikipedia articles on these pioneers as they're probably enjoyable to read than this book

    Nice slim novel contains biographies of Hypatia Maria Agnesi Emilie de Breteuil Caroline Herschel Sophie Germain Mary Fairfax Somerville Sonya Corvin Krukovsky Kovalevsky and Emmy NoetherA good resource should you be looking for positive role models for women and girls Written from a well balanced feminist perspective that does not gloss over nor focus exclusively on the barriers these women faced in the academic mathematical community Contains theory and mathematical meat than many biographies Written in the 70s the language is understandably a bit dated

    For a high school math project I had to choose a book title from the list my teacher gave me and I decided to read this book because it was relatively short However once I started reading it I was surprised about how interested I was I would recommend it to anyone who loves reading about strong confident women who are not afraid to turn against society's expectations

    This book is a good introduction to the subject of women in mathematics The biographies are short and include both mathematical accomplishments as well as interesting information about personal lives
