Everything from the disparaging comments by Harvard’s then-president to government reports and media coverage has focused on the ways in which women supposedly can’t do science. Gornick’s original interviews show how deep and severe discrimination against women was back then in all scientific fields. Her new interviews, with some of the same women she spoke to 25 years ago, provide a fresh description of the hard times and great successes these women have experienced.

Non-science perspective of science
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
As a woman in science myself (PhD in Engineering) I find this book to be an obscure interpretation of a scientist's plight. The author blatantly puts words in her interviewee's mouth to fit her perspective of the field. She goes on strange rants about "science is all about being right" and how women just want to be believed.
There are some interesting parts about current ideas and scandals at the time around women in science.
