Women of Genius in Science

Women of Genius in Science


Lars Jaeger



Springer ©2023


Although women participated in shaping scientific thinking from the outset, they very rarely became visible. This imbalance continues today, although there are currently more female scientists than ever before. Lars Jaeger spans an arc from antiquity to the present day and portrays the lives and work of the most important female scientists and mathematicians in essay-like introductions. From Hypatia of Alexandria to Emmy Noether and Lisa Randall, they have all achieved great things, decisively advanced science and yet often could not step out of the shadow of their male colleagues.

In addition to the exciting portraits of the individual women scientists, the book also sheds light on gender relations in science and their agonisingly slow evolution in favour of women.
