I loved everything about this! As a mom, raising a daughter interested in STEM fields, I am so happy I now have a book to share with her full of great role models, more than just Marie Curie.

I really really loved this gorgeous collection of bios of artists!! I can't believe I hadn't heard of most of them! It's sad 😥
My personal favorite was probably Rosa Bonhuer.

Parts of this book read almost like a memoir, but I didn't mind it

I highly recommend 😊

If you have had a baby, and the doctor gave you an Apgar score to make sure your precious bundle was healthy, you can thank a brilliant woman for that. I am already so enjoying this book about little known women in science, like Virginia Apgar!

Cleopatra: A Life | Stacy Schiff
post image
Pickpick

This was a little textbooky for my tastes. But still an interesting read. So much is unknown about Cleopatra's life, so there was alot of assumptions made. However, the author painted a rich picture of the culture, and the social, political climate in which Cleopatra ruled. Also many important ideas about how history remembers women in power. Cleopatra is most known for her love life, and not the lasting contributions she made to the world

DivineDiana I found this book fascinating! 💗 7mo

Starting my #justabookswap book of a strong woman. Perfect for #womenshistorymonth and I found this sweet note inside from @Johanna414 💕 It looks like you did send it with a note but I was too silly to open the pages far enough to find it 😊 Thanks again for a great pick!

Johanna414 Haha that‘s a relief! I thought I had included something but figured I had just dropped it or had a mom brain moment... I‘m actually reading the same book right now and really enjoying it - I hope you do too! 7mo
LoverofLit @Johanna414 I feel ya on the mom brain 100% 😉 I just finished the prologue at the beginning and can already tell I'm gonna love it! 7mo
sammisho Kiersten White is my favorite new to me author from the past year! 7mo
LoverofLit @sammisho I just added the trilogy you read of hers on GR. So excited! 7mo

Weaponxgirl That was super quick! It‘s a awesome book isn‘t it? 😁 7mo
Aimeesue @Weaponxgirl I was in the mood, it was available on Hoopla, and I had nothing else to do today, yay! I‘ve only read the first two essays, but I can already tell it‘s going to be one of those books that broaden the way I think about things. 🧐 7mo
Weaponxgirl @Aimeesue I love when that happens! And yea, this one has definitely got my brain swirling into overtime action. 7mo
