HEADSTRONG 52 Women Who Changed Science--and the World

by | Read by Lauren Fortgang

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

A sense of clarity and importance is conveyed in Lauren Fortgang's narration of Swaby's concise biographies of female figures in twentieth-century science. Fifty-two women who made significant differences in seven scientific fields are introduced and recognized as the role models they became throughout their lifetimes. Swaby's wittiness and Fortgang's easy pace and engaging tone encourage listener interest in each groundbreaking scientist and lead to greater understanding of what each woman had to overcome to make her discovery. Passionate and feminine, Fortgang's voice is the perfect fit for a book that seeks to increase recognition for women in science. D.Z. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2015]
