This volume describes the activities and personalities of the numerous women scientists--astronomers, chemists, biologists, and psychologists--who overcame extraordinary obstacles to contribute to the growth of American science. This history recounts women's efforts to establish themselves as members of the scientific community and examines the forces that inhibited their active and visible participation in the sciences.
