Women have often been discouraged from pursuing careers in science, no matter their level of interest or aptitude. The women depicted in this coloring book defied the odds and forged ahead with their studies, sometimes working with their fathers, brothers, or husbands in order to gain access to resources in the field of astronomy. Tasha Gross has drawn portraits of 22 female scientists and written short biographies to accompany them for this coloring book. Included are Annie Jump Cannon, Mae Jemison, Judith Resnick, Sally Ride, and 18 others.
