Multimedia journalist Zara Stone celebrates women who push against barriers that women and girls of color and other marginalized identities face as they pursue STEM education and careers. Jesse Vilinsky's earnest narration allows the women to speak for themselves. She delivers the engaging narrative of the author, as well as the passion of such visionary women as Pree Walia, the inventor of Nailbot, a robotic manicurist; Kimberlie Le, founder of Prime Roots, a protein-rich meat alternative; and Vivian Chu, developer of the AI for Moxi, a robot used in hospitals, among others. Vilinsky adopts the tone of an on-air interviewer, fluidly distinguishing between author and interviewees as they discuss the driving forces behind their creations. This audiobook is dedicated to BIPOC, nonbinary, and LGBTQIA listeners, but everyone can benefit from its galvanizing examples, past and present.
