Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

The core of this book is 88 profiles with photographs of women scientists and engineers whose diversity is stunning. Journeys of women in science and engineering includes research scientists and engineers in areas from biochemistry to mathematics, from neuroscience to computer science, from animal science to civil engineering. It includes those who have made careers in public service--people like Dr. Joycelyn Elders, the recent U.S. Surgeon General--Dr. Susan Love, the breast cancer activist; and Rhea L. Graham, the first woman and first African American director of the Bureau of Mines. It includes Nobel Prize winners, beginning assistant professors, division directors of corporations, and even an engineering school dean.
