Say hello to Hypatia, an ancient Greek mathematician and astronomer. Learn about Lise Meitner, the heroic Jewish physicist who escaped the Nazis. Join Jane Goodall who lived in the jungle studying apes. These women are just a few of the many who followed their passion for science and technology, and weren't put off by people telling them they couldn't or shouldn't. And along the way they discovered radiation, wrote the first computer program, expanded our knowledge of the universe and flew into space. Curious, provocative, engaging, brave, and funny - women who change the world are diverse, intriguing, and brilliant.
